The family of a Florida man killed in a boat collision involving TV personality Kevin O'Leary late last month has started an online fundraising campaign to help the children of the second victim of the crash.

Gary Poltash, 64, was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision on Lake Joseph, a popular cottage area north of Toronto, on Saturday, Aug. 24. A second victim, Suzana Brito, a 48-year-old mother of three from Uxbridge, Ont., died in hospital the following Tuesday.

Ontario Provincial Police are still investigating the deadly collision and have not filed charges. Officials say the crash occured around 11:30 p.m. when two boats, a smaller ski boat and a larger wakeboard pleasure craft, collided on the lake, near Emerald Island.
