Man to Swim to Block Island After Accident
September 2, 2012
Boston.com: It had been a long day at the engineering firm where Trent Theroux is director of finance. When he finally arrived at his home on Narragansett Bay on September 23, 2002, he helped get his 2 kids in bed, and then, around 9:00 p.m., walked down to the beach with his beloved banana-yellow kayak.
He stuck close to the shoreline and after 30 minutes of peaceful paddling, turned and headed back. “There was a full moon, it was as bright as a bell,” said Theroux, a boyish-looking man of 44. “I could see all the land shapes around me.”
Then he heard the engine. And what happened next nearly killed him.
