"Bill" Kills 7-Year-Old Girl

Is someone responsible?

Hurricane Bill did not make a landfall in Maine, but the storm's waves there claimed a life.  A 7-year-old girl was among 20 people washed into the water by a large wave from a state park where people were watching the wild surf.  Many of the people swam to safety themselves. The Coast Guard rescued three people, including the little girl.  However, she later died.

Officials reported that the people who were wave-watching were doing so from an area that was not roped off for safety. 

Should this be considered a tragic accident, or is there someone to be held responsible for the girl's death?  Her father was one of the three people the Coast Guard rescued from the water.  He survived.
