MELBOURNE, Florida – Officials say seven passengers on an airboat were rescued on Lake Washington in Brevard County.
The crash happened Thursday morning in a lake known for alligators.
One person in the boating crash told a news crew that they waited for rescue while standing on top of the overturned vessel.
All seven passengers made it to shore safely and nobody required any medical attention.
The boat’s owner said the passengers were a group of friends from out of town. He wasn’t sure what caused the vessel to capsize.
