Two injured in boating accident

Two Florida men were injured Saturday morning when their boat crashed into a dock and seawall in the Intracoastal Waterway.

A day on the water for the 65-year-old friends came to an abrupt end when the skipper of the 28-foot 2011 Pursuit boat with twin 250-hp Yamaha outboards was distracted when he reached down to pick up a cup of coffee.

The impact then caused the skipper to hit the throttle fully open as he was ejected from the vessel into shallow water.
