Two children injured in boating accident
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A fun day on the water took a dangerous turn.
A 14-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy were injured in a boating accident Sunday afternoon in northern Biscayne Bay off the Julia Tuttle Causeway.
The young girl got caught in the propeller of the boat, after falling off an inner tube.
Sea Tow and fire rescue workers freed the girl from the propeller. "We were able to get her free," said Brett Sternbach. "Get her aboard my vessel, and take the young lady and the other child that was injured over to Mount Sinai Hospital for them to take care of them."
The teenage girl suffered deep cuts to her leg.
