NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The families of the two people killed in the tragic boat accident on the Hudson River said Wednesday that it might not have been the boat operator’s fault.
As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, the remarks from the families of bride-to-be Lindsey Stewart and best man Mark Lennon came as Stewart’s loved ones prepared to say goodbye.
“I don’t know what else to say,” one mourner said. “She was a beautiful, beautiful girl.”
Hundreds of mourners lined up outside the Wyman-Fisher Funeral home in Pearl River to mourn Stewart’s loss, CBS 2’s Tracee Carrasco reported Wednesday night.
“You can’t bring her back, no matter what you say,” said Gerry Reynolds, a friend and former co-worker of Stewart’s. “It’s hard. It’s very hard. We loved her and we’ll miss her.”
In what should have been a time of wedding celebrations, there were only hugs and tears of sadness Wednesday evening.
