Five people were injured when their 35-foot boat collided with a seawall at the Miami Beach Marina. Two Coast Guard cutters responded near Government Cut yesterday afternoon. Emergency medical workers from Miami Beach Fire Rescue and Miami-Dade County were also called.
35-foot Sea-Vee3 passengers were immediately transported to a local hospital. Two stayed behind to help investigators but were later taken to area hospitals. A Coast Guard spokesman said he did not have details about the injuries, but said they included head trauma, cracked ribs and a broken arm. The victims were aboard a 35-foot Sea-Vee motorboat Kamina when it crashed into the seawall.
