Key Biscayne Crash Throws Boaters From Vessel


FOR COMPLETE ELECTION COVERAGE TOMORROW AND TUESDAY AT 9 AM RIGHT HERE ON CBS4. NOW AT 11 THERE WERE TWO PEOPLE HURT IN A BOATING ACCIDENT AT KEY BISCAYNE AND THEY WERE TRANSPORTED TO AREA HOSPITALS AND CBS4 IS A LIVE IN KEY BISCAYNE WITH WHAT WENT WRONG. Reporter: THAT BOAT IS STILL OUT ON THE SANDBAR AND IT IS A DARK NIGHT HEARING KEY BISCAYNE, THEREFORE PEOPLE STILL ON IT WHEN HE FOR HIGH TIDE AND MEANWHILE THE TWO WOMEN WERE RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL. IT WAS A 32 FOOT VESSEL THEY LEFT THE GIVEN EARLY SUNDAY WITH 13 PEOPLE ONBOARD AND ON THE WAY BACK TO THE ARENA THE DRIVER CUT SHARPLY TO THE INLET BUT SUDDENLY RAN AGROUND ON A SANDBAR, THE STOP WAS SO SUDDEN AND SEVERE ONE WOMAN FLEW OUT OF THE BOAT AND ANOTHER SLAMMED INTO THE CENTER CONSOLE. IT WAS IN AN AREA WHERE YOU CAN GO FULL THROTTLE BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY MADE A TURN SHARPER THAN WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO THAT IS WHEN THEY HIT BOTTOM AND THE VESSEL STOPPED COMPLETELY AT FULL SPEED EJECTING THE FIRST PERSON THAT WAS AIRLIFTED AND THE OTHER PERSON WHO BROKE HER ARM. MIAMI-DADE FIRE AND RESCUE WENT TO A LANDING AREA WHERE THE CHOPPER FLEW HER TO THE HOSPITAL ON THE OTHER WOMAN THROWN IN THE BOAT WAS ALSO TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL WITH A BROKEN ARM. HOURS LATER THE DARK NIGHT THERE WERE FOUR PEOPLE STILL ON THE STRANDED BOAT WAITING FOR HIGH TIDE AFTER REFUSING TO BE TOWED. ALCOHOL WASN’T A FACTOR BUT INEXPERIENCE WAS. INEXPERIENCE IS A GREAT PART UNFORTUNATELY. WE DO HAVE NEW EQUIPMENT THAT HELPS US WITH NAVIGATION, AND IF YOU DON’T HAVE GPS YOU SHOULD KNOW THE AREA THAT YOU’RE BOATING AND IF NOT DEATH I HAVE A GPS ON YOUR VESSEL THAT CAN SHOW YOU THE CORRECT WAY TO GET AROUND. THEREFORE PEOPLE STILL ON THE BOAT WAITING FOR HIGH TIDE WHICH IS A COUPLE OF HOURS AWAY
