Runaway boat slams into house

You’ve heard of cars running into houses, but a boat?

It happened Saturday in Lehigh Acres, Fla., near Fort Myers, when a boat on a trailer came unhitched from the vehicle that was towing it, according to witnesses, and veered into a duplex, according to WZVN-TV.

“I came to the front and there was a boat in the house,” said a neighbor, who called 9-1-1.
