Yesterday afternoon in Lawrence, a man on a Yamaha personal jet ski with his 5-year-old son crashed full speed into a dock in Crooked Creek. Witnesses say the man appeared to lose control of the water bike. The man, 42-year-old Roopnarine Gopaul, was unconscious in the water while the boy was still on the jet ski; a witness told WCBS 2, "We had to lift the [broken, splintered] dock, break it apart to lift it off of them and get child out first." Gopaul was pronounced dead yesterday at St. John's Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway, while his son was pronounced dead this morning at Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow. According to MyFoxNY, some residents say the creek is dangerous and "isn't meant for high-speed boating" while Newsday reports that, according to a neighbor, the "dock was built a few years ago and is longer than other docks in the area."
