According to a preliminary report, the incident happened Friday night, around 6:30 pm after the Currie family, of Dublin, Ohio, docked their boat at the Miller Marina on Langram Road on the island. The boat was plugged into the dock when the family dog fell into the water and was struggling. The boat’s owner Jeffrey Currie jumped in to fetch the dog but he also started to struggle. That’s when his two sons jumped in to help, but they too began to have difficulties swimming.
Currie’s wife, Elizabeth, was on-board the boat and bystanders told her to unplug the power. As soon as she did the electrical current stopped and Currie and his sons were able to get back on the boat.
Evan, however, was unresponsive and convulsing. He was given CPR and transported to the mainland where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators said an electrician checked out the dock and everything was normal. Investigators will take the boat, a 33′ SeaRay Sundancer, back to the dock and recreate the scene in hopes of finding out exactly how Evan Currie died.
Evan’s public facebook page says he studied at Xavier University.
Jeffrey Currie’s Linkedin page says he works as a Market Director/Sales Manager for Johnson Controls in Central Ohio.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends at this difficult time.
