A man is accused of throwing his 7-year-old son overboard after the boy witnessed a fight between the man and his girlfriend on a cruise in Newport Harbor. Witnesses say they saw Sloane Briles, 35, hit his son and then toss the child in the water. People on three boats in the area rushed to save the boy, pulling him to safety, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino. The boy was shaken up but otherwise OK, Amormino told KTLA.
