The boat straightened up and sped toward a concrete dock before falling over it, blowing the boat into the air. It then crashed into another dock before stalling, according to the sheriff’s office.
The men who fell from the boat were able to swim to a nearby sailboat. One of the men had minor injuries and no other injuries were reported according to the sheriff̵
A helicopter with the sheriff’s office tracked the boat as it guided naval units to the passengers in the water. A representative of the helicopter filmed a video of the boat reaching the dock.
The St. Lucie River is an 11 km long estuary that flows into the Atlantic Ocean. The sheriff’s office said the incident occurred south of the Stuart Causeway, which connects the city of Stuart with Hutchinson Island and north of St. Lucie Inlet, where the river meets the Atlantic.
