"A grandfather and his nine-year-old grandson have died in a sea angling accident off the north Wales coast.
They were thrown into the water when the family's 14-ft dinghy capsized off Puffin Island, Anglesey, and had severe hypothermia before they were found."
They were ALL wearing lifejackets!!!
Who would think extreme cold in the middle of summer???
The father and 12 year old brother survived - just imagine the guilt and feelings the poor people will have to live with - doesn't bear thinking about. Just hope they won't be subjected to a witch hunt.
Don't know how long they were in the water - probably even if they had flares and maybe vhf they would have been lost when the boat flipped.
Apparently force 6 with 1.5m waves - probably marginal conditions for a 14ft hard dinghy but then again they may have been in a sheltered bay or something.
thoughts most definitely with the poor family!!!
