sailboat accident claims life of disabled Victoria teen

A disabled Victoria teen who died in a tragic accident one week ago is being remembered as an outgoing, energetic and passionate young man by family and friends.

Sixteen-year-old Gabriel Pollard, who suffered from a severe form of muscular dystrophy, returned from a sailboat outing with the Disabled Sailing Association of Victoria to a dock off Admirals Road on Thursday.

As he was being lifted out of the boat, part of the lift mechanism broke, sending him crashing onto the boat deck.
