The Fourth of July took a deadly turn on Long Island when a boat capsized. The accident happened at the 83rd annual Babylon Yacht Club Sailboat Regatta on the Great South Bay.

John Everitt's boat suddenly capsized at noon, throwing him and his wife overboard near West Islip.

Everitt, 65, died despite having a life jacket on.

It's still not clear what caused the boat to capsize.

The 15-foot Vanguard 15 was impounded to the Suffolk Country Marine Bureau.
