    2 california teenagers die in PWC accident

    Two California teenagers die in accident on Colorado River

    By Mary Manning · July 7, 2008 · 3:48 PM
    Two Murrietta, Calif., teenagers died after their personal water craft and a boat crashed about 5:30 p.m. Saturday on the Colorado River, north of Needles Bridge.
    Officials responding found firefighters and paramedics performing CPR on 19-year-old Desiree Hobill, who was driving the personal water craft.
    Paramedics were also treating 14-year-old Tiffany A. Breslin. Both teenagers were taken to Colorado River Medical Center. Breslin was flown to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas where she was pronounced dead at 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
    Hobill was pronounced dead at the medical center about 7 p.m. Saturday. Murrietta is located between Los Angeles and San Diego in the Southern California desert.
    Investigators learned that 46-year-old Daniel Gene Ashcraft of Tustin, Calif., saw the water craft coming towards him after he passed under the Needles Bridge heading northbound on the river.
    Ashcraft said that the teenagers were looking toward the Arizona shoreline and not where their craft was headed. He said he attempted to avoid the crash by turning his Chaparral boat, but could not turn in time, officials said.
    This boating crash is still under investigation by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department boating accident investigation team. At this time, alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash, officials said.

    Poor children ! they learned a lesson they can never use again! A boating safety course or a more involved adult could have helped prevent this ? who knows ? RIP So sad
