Four people were injured when a 42-foot HCB center console ran into a jetty in Dania Beach, Fla., shortly after midnight Jan. 1. The Miami CBS affiliate reported that a woman was ejected from the boat.
“She landed on the rocks,” Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Kyle Vanbuskirk told the television station. “She landed about a foot and a half outside the water on the rocks, semiconscious.”
The woman reportedly had a head injury, and paramedics treated her until ground crews arrived to take her to the hospital. The other passengers also were hospitalized; all are expected to survive.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating the accident and has not released any information on the boat’s owner.
