No less sad and frustrating when written in dry technical prose. If you get past the human toll it seems interesting and informative.

As said before just tragic, I sincerely hope it makes more people wear their kill cord.
Good summary by the BBC I thought....

Desperately sad, and so easily avoided.

Possibly, but would you've thrown a hard turn from the passenger seat, with no KC attached to anyone, small kids loose onboard and 300hp on tap? :-( A reckless manoeuvre?

Yes very sad and avoidable. Ive just read most of the article which is very interesting in a technical way. Kind of raises some issues with the particular boat make in a number of area's, glad mine is a much older version of the brand which they suggest didnt have similar issues. Still having said all that if you put engine in full throttle in a really tight turn things will probably go bad with any boat.

The Kill Cord issue is such an important one, perhaps we should all start to complain to the advertising watch bodies about all those pictures in the boating mags where people in fast small boats are not wearing kill cords or life jackets. ?

Should be required reading for all small high powered craft owners. The explanation of how a "hook" occurs is clear & concise.

I was thrown off the console, over the tubes and in the drink on my old 4m narwhall and that only had a 40hp.

I had the kill cord on and it stopped instantly.
It was funny at the time but taught me a valuable lesson before my kids were born and on the boat.
Thank goodness!
