A video of an out-of-control boat in Florida was shared by the Martin County Sherrif resembling a scene out of an action movie. The boat ended up making a crash landing after going airborne over a dock.
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office shared the video on Facebook and wrote, “Three people reportedly doing a photo shoot aboard a boat—somehow fell overboard leaving the 24-foot vessel unmanned and out of control. The incident happened late Friday in the St Lucie River, just south of the Stuart Causway. The three male occupants told MCSO Marine Deputies that they were forced to dive underwater numerous times, because the boat continued to circle around nearly running them over.”
The post further read, “They said the vessel eventually straightened itself out—then traveled at a high rate of speed hitting a concrete dock near the 1500 block of St. Lucie Boulevard. It then went airborne and hit a second dock before coming to a stop. MCSO Air-1 Pilot Justin Lundsteadt stayed over the vessel to direct marine units to the passengers.”
Chief Pilot, Deputy Doug Newsom, captured the unbelievable video. Though the occupants were able to swim to a nearby sailboat, one of the men suffered minor injuries.
The footage released by the sheriff’s office shows the boat hitting the dock, going airborne, and then coming to rest after smashing into another dock.
