Renee Deritis Obituary, Death – A boat measuring 27 feet and another boat measuring 44 feet collided on Sunday evening in Great South Bay on Long Island, resulting in the death of a couple from Long Island. Both boats were measuring in at 27 feet. It was approximately 10:40 p.m. when the crash took place north of Fire Island, as stated in the records from the Suffolk County police. A collision between the larger boat that Louis Deritis, age 53, was running and the smaller boat that he was in resulted in him being thrown overboard.
The guy who was piloting the larger boat was 61 years old and was not injured. In addition to the victim, Renee Deritis, the victim’s wife, who was 50 years old, also passed dead. Her lifeless body was found by scuba divers investigating the underwater suite of the yacht where she had been hiding. On their website, the Islip Fire Department included images that they had taken at the scene of the accident. On its Facebook page, the Islip Rescue Department stated the following: “An Islip FD rescue diver located a victim within the hull of the submerged overturned boat and extracted the victim to our vessel,” “Unfortunately, there was nothing that could be done to save the victim, and they were pronounced dead at the scene,” you said. “There was nothing that could be done to save the victim.”
In the middle of the night, the images that were taken by the fire department appear to show little more than the prow of a boat that is sinking popping its head above the surface of the murky water. The location of the crash was thoroughly searched, but the search did not turn up any additional victims. The probe is now being conducted by the police department in Suffolk County, which has been given responsibility for it. Ferdinand Caravousanos, who was the skipper of the 1989 Henriques Sport Fisherman when it crashed with the 1989 OC/MA boat owned by the Deritis, has been identified as the sole survivor of the accident. The Deritis’ boat was involved in the incident. Long Island News 12 was the one who broke the story about the event.
