Davidrogerson is an unknown quantity at this point
I agree and i'm assuming that these people had a relative knowledge of sailing and as we all know don't get in the way of the boom, by the way the story sounds though i'd have assumed an accidental gybe would be the cause but can't be sure.
Unfortunatley death or serious injury caused by the boom are all too common
