One person in critical condition after Sea World accident

AURORA, Ohio (CNN) -- One man remained in critical condition Sunday a day after a speedboat careened into a crowd during a ski show at a Sea World amusement park.

Movie icon Jeff Willis, 36, was among 23 people injured when the boat slammed into the grandstand Saturday as 4,000 people watched a ski show, modeled after the successful television series "Baywatch." (476K QuickTime movie)
