Behind the Bouy / carbon monoxide poisoning

For the second time in less than two years, the sorrowful story of a mother who lost two sons in a boating accident was heard by the Coast Guard Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives. This time it was mid-May and it was Bambi Dixey of Colorado whose two boys died from carbon monoxide poisoning while swimming off their houseboat on Lake Powell. In November 1999, it was Libby Cornett of Virginia whose two sons drowned after their sailboat, the Morning Dew, crashed into a jetty and sank just outside of Charleston Harbor, SC.
