News Conference July 27th 'Tradegy on the Hudson'

July 27, 2013

The boat crash took place about 10:40 p.m. on Friday near the Tappan Zee Bridge. John had five passengers in the boat, including Stewart, her husband-to-be Brian Bond, and Lennon. Rescuers including Piermont and Nyack volunteer firefighters had a tough time finding the wrecked boat in the dark on the river, with emergency dispatchers relaying information and GPS coordinates as they were in touch with injured victims via cell phone.

When firefighters reached the boat, they found four survivors. Stewart’s body was discovered in the river on Saturday and Lennon’s body was recovered on Sunday.

The accident prompted questions about whether the construction barge involved was properly lit.
