LOS ANGELES (AP) - Coast Guard Base Los Angeles-Long Beach will hold a memorial for the executive petty officer of the cutter Halibut who died from injuries caused by a boat collision while investigating suspected smuggling activity in the Channel Islands.
The ceremony remembering Senior Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne will be held Saturday afternoon at Reservation Point on Terminal Island.
The memorial will not be open to the public.
Horne was aboard a small boat deployed from the cutter to intercept a panga boat running without lights near Santa Cruz Island early Sunday.
Authorities say the panga rammed the Coast Guard boat, throwing Horne and another crewman into the ocean. A propeller struck Horne in the head. The panga was eventually stopped and two Mexican nationals were arrested and charged with killing Horne.
