Coast Guard releases video of runaway boat

A boater was ejected from a Boston whaler in the Somes Sound near Acadia National Park on Tuesday morning.

Lt. Chellsey Phillips of the Coast Guard released a statement saying the release of the video is meant to emphasize life jacket safety and the importance of having a kill switch on boats, which cuts power to the engine when operators go overboard.
