Trial date set for Hooksett man in boating fatality
Eric Cable, 33, of Hooksett is accused of piloting a boat while intoxicated and causing the death of Brendan Yerry, 28, of Hudson, who fell off the boat and died.
Prosecutors say that while Cable was driving the boat on the night of July 14, he allowed Yerry to ride on the gunwales or straddle the bow.
Yerry fell overboard and was struck by the boat when Cable turned into the wake of another boat, according to indictments.
Divers from N.H. Fish and Game Department spent more than 12 hours searching for Yerry’s body. It was found the next morning in about 15 feet of water, 550 feet from the northeast shoreline, according to investigators.
Northwood Lake sits between Rockingham and Merrimack counties, spanning roughly 650 acres. Prosecutors say Cable was operating the boat in Northwood. Investigators could not say how fast Cable was driving the 18-foot motor boat.
