Default Boat Accident in Indian River Florida

MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. – An unmanned and out of control boat smashed into a concrete dock before going airborne in Florida on Friday. Three people were on board the boat doing a photoshoot when they fell overboard, leaving the 24-foot boat unmanned in the St. Lucie River south of the Stuart Causeway, according to Martin County deputies.

Kinda curious about all the shenanigans that boat did in between the time the photo shoot fell off and the helicopter showed up on scene.

Looked like the boat went over the dock, not thru it.

My attempt at humor. It looked to me like he made the hole in the dock.

Well, after he hit the dock he apparently did make a hole in it.

Selfies are always more important than common sense or personal responsibility.

I can't imagine being in the water in the middle of an out of control circling boat at WOT. Some very poor judgement/lucky passengers.

I saw it happen once when I was about 12. I was in the water waiting to be pulled up on skis. My dad's friend was running the boat which was a runabout. He went to the back of the boat to throw out the ski rope, then as he was walking back forward, he tripped, fell and hit the throttle wide open which threw him back on his ass in the back of the boat. The boat circled around about 4 or 5 times before he could get back up and get it under control. It came close to me, but I was not far out and scampered up on shore real quick. Scared shit out of everyone. This was back in the days before kill switches and lanyards, etc. He was the only one in the boat. Probably about 1967.
