  • Description

    Four of the persons killed were members of the Sullivan family. The only survivor of it was their eight year old son, Robert.

    In hospital he said: "I don't know what happened. All of a sudden I began to slide and went under the seat. Then I was in the water. Mommy was holding me. Then in the water, we couldn't stay up." He and his mother were saved from the water but his mother died in hospital. His voice faltered. It was obvious he knew he would never see his parents and sisters again.
