GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The family of John Harrison Doucet wants more information about the circumstances leading up to the accident that left the 20-year old fighting for his life in a burn unit in Georgia.

Doucet suffered severe burns when his boat struck a power line at the Gulfport Yacht Club last week.

Saturday, Doucet's family said the incident was "preventable". Tommy Doucet and Ruthie McMullen have hired attorneys Joe Sam Owen, Jimmy Collins, and Abraham Banks to look into the matter.
