2 man rescued from overturned boat near Miami Seaquarium

Miami, Florida – On Friday US Coast Guard rescued two men after their boat capsized near the Miami Seaquarium.
According to the Coast Guard, they responded at approximately 4:15 a.m. to a call of two men in a vessel that was taking on water.
“It’s important to remember to always have a form of communication while taking part in activities on the water,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Travis Park, a boarding officer at Coast Guard Station Miami Beach. “Without the ability to communicate, this case could’ve had a different outcome.”
The Coast Guard reminds all recreational boaters, and those operating a personal watercraft or in a paddle raft of these important safety tips while enjoying activities on the water: Wear a life jacket, take a boating safety class, carry all required safety gear, use your engine cut-off device, file a float plan, boat sober, and be considerate of others. It’s important to check the weather and water conditions before you get on the water.
