Luckily, everyone on the boat who jumped into the water were not seriously injured.

The 75-year-old driver of the large boat said he didn’t see them because he was sitting down while driving.

But, the man’s son-in-law told police he didn’t notice the small boat because he was looking at his phone at the time of the collision.

One person has filed a lawsuit, and the others have hired attorneys.
