A third son, Anthony J. Aceto of Whitesboro, was rescued by a passing fisherman who also contacted 911 shortly after the craft crashed into a concrete channel marker near Messenger Shoals.
The accident occurred around 10:45 p.m. on Thursday. The bodies were recovered around 7:45 a.m. by an State Police Dive Team. The bodies were turned over to the Oneida County Sheriff's Office.
