2 hospitalized after personal watercraft accident in Miami Gardens

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and Miami Gardens Police responded to the scene of a personal watercraft accident in Snake Creek Canal.

Three young men were involved in the incident, Tuesday afternoon, in the area of Northwest 202nd Terrace and Second Avenue, according to Miami Gardens PD.

“A lot of people come out here to boat and JetSki daily on the weekend,” said Junior Spice, who lives nearby. “Every time I’m driving through the neighborhood, I always see somebody out here.”

According to Miami Gardens PD, it appears two men had fallen off the watercraft. They said it appeared there was no collision.

One man called for help after he reached the bank of the canal.

The second was pulled from the water. He and another man were transported to Jackson North Medical Hospital in unknown conditions.

“This is the first time that I have ever seen any type of accident, especially across One and 99th,” said Spice. “When an accident comes like this one, the problems come.”

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is leading an ongoing investigation into the incident.
