Surprising cause of death in teen boating accident creates ‘Raven’s Rule’

LAKE WACCAMAW, NC (WECT) –

Investigators originally assumed she’d drowned, but new details have emerged about the tragic death of a Columbus County teenager.

16-year-old Raven Little-White died in August after a boating accident on Lake Waccamaw. The medical examiner’s report lists “drowning” as the probable cause of death, but a toxicology report that came back later revealed Raven had actually succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning.

The Accident

Raven was on the boat with nine other kids ranging in age from 11-17 on the evening of the accident. District Attorney Jon David said they were not drinking, but just out having fun when they made a fatal error to accommodate the number of people on the inboard ski boat.
