Video shows moments before Coast Guard crash

After months of speculation about the Coast Guard patrol boat that killed 8-year-old San Diego boy Anthony DeWeese - how fast it was going, what lights the struck boat had on, the conditions on the bay that evening - people attending the court-martial of boat pilot Paul Ramos on Tuesday finally saw the vessel in action.

A video taken from a nearby sailboat on Dec. 20, 2009, shows the 33-foot Coast Guard patrol boat in the final 10 minutes before it crashed into the DeWeese family boat during the San Diego Bay Parade of Lights.
