Carman told the AP by telephone that after water began pouring into his boat, he saw his mother in the cockpit. He said he grabbed survival gear, then looked back and she was gone.

Carman says he was like a son to his grandfather, who was slain in Connecticut. Police there say Carman had been a suspect, but was never charged.
