FBI dive teams are lifting the boat using air bladders to the Silverton vessel and inflating them, bringing the boat slowly to the surface where any remaining water will be pumped out.
The FBI has divers at the vessel that capsized and sank off Oyster Bay, killing three children on July 4. A funeral was held today for one of the victims, 12-year-old David Aureliano.
A stream of mourners attended the wakes of 8-year-old Victoria Gaines and 11-year-old Harley Treanor at separate funeral homes on Sunday.
“Numerous challenges, depending where a boat goes down, you have currents, low visibility, you have all different kinds of debris,” said Mitch Kramer of North Shore towing.
