Bristol man who was critical condition in a boat racing accident in Missouri has died.

Michael Fiore passed away Tuesday night due to injuries he sustained in the accident over the weekend.

A statement from Frank Sciacca, General Counsel of Outerlimits Offshore Powerboat Company reads:

"Outerlimits Offshore Powerboat Company President/CEO and Founder Michael Fiore passed away this evening from injuries sustained during a boating event in Missouri over the weekend. Mr. Fiore, age 44 of Bristol, RI developed complications from surgery when he died at University Hospital in Missouri. The entire Outerlimits family is devastated by the loss of our friend and leader of our company.  Mike's love for high speed boating was only out matched by the love for his wife, three young children and his family. Details on arrangements will be made and released in the coming days, and in the meantime we hope all understand the family's need to grieve for their loss privately." 

It happened on Saturday morning when Fiore was racing on a 42 foot catamaran on the Lake of the Ozarks and lost control.

The report from Missouri State Police reveals that Fiore was on the boat with another man, Joel Begin, 47, of Quebec, who was also injured in the accident.

Police say the vessel lost control at a high speed due to wind interference where it then became airborne and flipped over twice before hitting the water, bow first, end over end.
