According to an incident report, the 25-foot Chris Craft Michael Capponi, 42, and his girlfriend, Brooke Biederman, 23, were riding in crashed shortly before 10 a.m. March 20 at the Coast Guard station near the MacArthur Causeway.

Capponi told Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials that he was heading to a business meeting when he suddenly blacked out.

He said he remembered traveling north on the Melloy Channel, but didn't remember the impact of the crash.
