MIAMI — Authorities were investigating what led to a crash between two boats Sunday afternoon that led to over a dozen people being hurt near PortMiami.
Around 3:15 p.m., over 30 Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel, including two fireboats and an air rescue unit — alongside the City of Miami Fire, the Florida Wildlife Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard — responded to reports of a boat collision in Fisherman’s Channel near Dodge Island.
According to the Coast Guard, the two watercraft involved were a tour boat and a recreation vessel.
According to MDFR, the response was upgraded due to the number of people involved and the need for additional manpower.
MDFR told CBS News Miami that a total of 13 people were transported by responding agencies to a local hospital, while other patients on the scene were evaluated and released.
