TSM 95. Harrison – Percy 02.03.1980
A family outing on Marion Bay ended in tragedy when the half cabin cruiser
was swamped while attempting to beach the craft in rising weather conditions
about one kilometre from 'The Narrows' – a rough stretch of water dividing
Marion Bay from Blackman Bay.
The bodies of Brian Frederick Harrison, Betty Nancy Harrison, Fay Kathleen
Percy and Terrence John Percy were recovered but an extensive search
failed to find any trace of 6 year old Brian Harrison Junior.
Only one person survived the tragic accident.
