somebody’s guilty?

Granted, this is a power boat story, but given the eerily similar circumstances, this story makes us wonder when a lawsuit will be filed on behalf of the death of Artemis crew member Bart Simpson…

Two years after three powerboat racers were killed in the Key West World Championship, the family of one of the victims filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Broward Circuit Court.

William Tillman, uncle and personal representative of the estate of Big Thunder driver Jeffrey “JT” Tillman of Missouri, sued Super Boat International Productions president John Carbonell and five members of his medical, safety and inspection team, alleging that their “gross negligence” was responsible for the death. The filing came Nov. 7 during the 2013 world championship, which concluded Sunday, according to the Miami Herald.

Jeffrey Tillman, 46, drowned along with owner/throttleman Bob Morgan, 74, in November 2011 after their four-engine catamaran flipped backward and landed upside down in Key West Harbor during the first race of the series.

The lawsuit, filed by Fort Lauderdale lawyer William Scherer, accuses Carbonell and his medical and safety staff of a slow and poorly coordinated rescue effort that left Tillman trapped underwater in the wreckage for nine minutes before he was recovered. Story thanks to Trade Only. Read on.
