Thurston County
Washington, USA


Age: 9 Years

A boating accident on the Nisqually river resulted in the deaths of two children, Sean (age 5) and Cameron (age 9) McCartney, and Bryan Pierce, an adult. According to the report in The Olympian, Vincent Farler offered to give Erin McCartney, her two children and her friend Bryan Pierce a ride on his flat-bottomed boat. The boat capsized after making a u-turn against the current, running into a logjam. Erin McCartney and Farler were able to make it to shore. Farler's blood alcohol level was 0.193 percent after the accident which is more than twice the legal limit. None of the five people on the boat was wearing a life vest.

Vincent Farler, 43, has been sentenced to six years and three months in prison for the 3 deaths. Farler made an Alford plea which, while not admitting guilt, concedes that there is enough evidence to convict.
