According to a USCG news release, there were five people on board the Coast Guard vessel, which was responding to a report at the time of the crash. The 24-foot boat had 13 people on board. Five people on the smaller boat suffered "major traumas," and an 8-year-old boy, Anthony Cole DeWeese, later died at UCSD Medical Center. No one on board the Coast Guard vessel was reportedly injured.

Please keep the family of Anthony DeWeese in your prayers, as the sudden loss of this young boy is surely devastating and incomprehensible. The cause of this tragic accident is currently under investigation.
