Accident Description

Another incident on the Great Miami involved a 30 year-old man whose boat capsized above a dam at 11:00 pm on October 9th. Needless to say, it was pitch dark outside. Rescuers who recovered the body said he was in “a small two-person plastic boat”, but did not identify it further. The articles alluded to several other recent rescues around the dam.
