Large wave injures recreational boater

The Coast Guard opted to hoist a recreational boater after his son, who was also on board the 25-foot vessel, reported his father might have broken his legs due to the impact of a large wave.

The 63-year-old was medically evacuated Wednesday about 44 miles east of St. Augustine, Fla. As of Thursday morning, his condition was unknown.
