The Broward Sheriff’s Office reports that a Boca Raton man suffered minor head injuries following a boating crash. The man’s rented boat hit a concrete bridge post, but the man is apparently doing fine despite a scratch on his head.
Deerfield Beach Fire-Rescue responded to the boat accident and treated the man. Another man who was riding in the boat assured paramedics he was not injured.
Since the boat hit a bridge in their city, Boca Raton police say they plan to investigate. Although none of the passengers were not seriously injured in this case, boating accidents can have serious consequences, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and even death.
