A WARNING has been issued after a 22-year-old woman was seriously injured when she fell off of a boat and was sucked into its propellers.
The Florida accident is the latest in a string of boating-related incidents that have claimed lives in multiple states.
The woman, a tourist, suffered “multiple very deep lacerations to her arm” after falling from the pontoon boat on July 25, the sheriff’s office said.
She was reportedly riding on the bow with her feet dangling in the water when the boat hit a wave.
The motion from the wave pulled the woman into the water and underneath the boat by the propeller.
First responders from the sheriff’s office were able to tend to the woman until emergency personnel could arrive.
The incident occurred west of Crab Island along the intercoastal waterway.
