Newburyport, Massachusetts – Family, friends recall crew of Lucky Lady, 10 years later

Friends and family members took part in a Mass last weekend to honor the memory of the two young men who died in the sinking of the dragger Lucky Lady 10 years ago today. Capt. Sean Cone, 24, a North Andover native, and crewman Dan Miller, 21, of North Hampton, N.H., were lost when their 52-foot vessel capsized and sank rapidly about 30 miles southeast of Portland, Maine, while returning to Newburyport, according to a Coast Guard investigation. A Mass was held on Saturday at St. Michael’s in North Andover, attended by Cone’s mother Leslie Arnold Cone, who flew up from Florida, according to the Remember Sean Cone Facebook page. The Coast Guard report was issued about a year after the sinking, concluding that it happened so quickly, neither man had time to access lifesaving equipment. Read the story here 10:27
