Massapequa Family Devastated by Tragic Boating Accident

On Sunday October 4, 2009, the lives of a Long Island family were turned upside down as a result of a senseless and catastrophic boating accident in the Great Island Channel, in Seaford, New York. Two of the victims, a mother and father of four children, were passengers on a 40 foot Hustler speed boat called "The Uncanni", that ran aground on Goose Island. At the time of the accident, the boat was being operated by George Canni. The boat was returning to the Canni residence in Copiague after picking up food at a local restaurant, with all on board planning to enjoy a quiet Sunday dinner. The other occupants of the boat included Canni's wife and three other passengers.
