Default FWC boat accident

I didnít see it posted anywhere, so I thought Iíd share.

An FWC freshwater biology crew were involved in a boating accident in West Palm Beach yesterday. 1 biologist killed, 2 injured. I knew the one that died, as I was a biologist prior to moving to LE.

I just saw that, terrible news. She was an FWRI Freshwater Fisheries biologist but that's all I know. The boat struck a piling under a bridge and she died from her injuries. Tragic.

Kyle is a good friend, words cannot describe the pain he and her family must be going through. This is tragic for many, and my heart is heavy for all involved. RIP.

I'm sure the report will be available once FWC completes the investigation. Since this is one of their own, and lots of questions will be asked, I'm sure they are doing their best.

I've seen that the operator and another passenger were both injured and hospitalized which means that Dana was a passenger and not the operator.

I suspect it will be operator error, however it's possible there was a steering failure or malfunction. Either way, we'll have to be patient, but even knowing the "why" doesn't lessen the pain of her loss.

Horrible.

I slow down and come off plane when going under every single bridge, but when I am in the Keys, it looks like I am the only one who does that.

Unfortunately I saw the crashed boat right after this happened. Thatís a fairly tight canal area with bridge pilings and concrete on both banks of the canal. Iíve seen those boats go through there crazy fast before in front of the airport. Extremely sad a life was lost.
