Yacht operator says boat hit by wave during Fourth of July outing; 3 children killed By The Associated Press

OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (AP) The man operating a yacht full of holiday revelers that capsized on the Fourth of July says the boat was hit by a rogue wave.

Sal Aurelino tells TV's News12 Long Island on Thursday that he was taking the Candi One home when lightning cracked, and moments later the boat was hit by a wave. He said it tilted, then kept turning and turning. He said it was chaos.

There were 27 people on board; three children died. Authorities were trying to determine whether the boat was overcrowded.
