    Friends of a military veteran who died after going overboard on a cruise are upset about the ship's delayed response.

    State officials will investigate whether alcohol laws were violated on a Boston Harbor cruise where a 21-year-old man fell overboard and died.

    The Boston Globe reports that the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission said Monday it will investigate. Kris Foster, general counsel of the agency, wouldn't provide details about the investigators, but said it generally looks for violations, like people being overserved.

    Aaron DiBella's body was found early Sunday, hours after he fell overboard from the Provincetown II ship during a party cruise.

    Friends of DiBella have been critical of the response aboard the ship.

    Police released footage of a mother who said she accidentally left her 5-month-old in a car for half an hour in a Goodyear, Arizona, parking lot when she, her sister and other daughter went into the store. Officers are heard on camera saying it was about 99 degrees outside.

    "He could have easily been saved," Matt Almon told NBC10 Boston Monday.

    The company that owns the boat said Dibella had been "engaging in horseplay" before falling.

    Michael Glasfeld is the owner of the company. He says it hasn't had a liquor violation in more than 15 years and doesn't believe "the investigation into this tragic event will result in one either."
