Car collisions are a dime a dozen, but boat accidents? Not so much. Especially in the open blue sea. Three boaters were out off the Haulover Beach area when their vessel was hit by another boat. It began taking on water, and eventually completely capsized.
Rescue teams begin searching for the boaters shortly after they relieved a 911 call at 9pm. The three luckily had on life preservers and were found hours later by another boater who took them to safety.
As for the boat that hit them, the three said it kept on going. [WSVN
