Owners of Novelli’s Crab and Seafood Perish in Accident

This morning around 3:15 the U.S. Coast Guard, Siuslaw Valley Fire and Rescue and Western Lane Ambulance were called to the South Jetty after reports of a capsized boat came in.  Upon arrival the scene was cluttered with debris and two people were recovered with assistance of the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter.  A third person had to be brought ashore by boat due to the helicopter being low on fuel.  Within the last hour we have learned that there were 2 deceased from the accident.  According to Novelli’s Crab and Seafood Facebook page both Kyle and Amber Novelli died as a result of the accident.  There is no official word on the third individual who was transported to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.  The U.S. Coast Guard will be updating the most current information shortly according to Chief Bosun’s mate Jay Nilles.
