It was like a scene out of an action movie – a boat comes flying out dense fog on a beach and slams into a popular restaurant.
It happened at Little Harbor in Ruskin, at the popular restaurant, Sunset Grill.
The 39-foot Sea Vee came out of nowhere, say eyewitnesses, at around 4:45 p.m. Monday afternoon.
Seven people were onboard when the boat barreled onto the beach and plunged into the restaurant. Witnesses claim it was operated by well-known local captain, Matt Santiago. He told us his passengers are doing fine, but witnesses were terrified.
Two vacationers in town from the Poconos were sitting on the beach and couldn’t believe what they saw. They were feet from dying.
“I’ve seen a lot of crazy stuff, but this takes the cake,” said Tobias Sabatine. “The way that everything happened, it looked like someone is dead. There was a little kid running around the beach, I’m shocked no one was killed.”
Two people on the boat suffered minor injuries, but no one else was hurt. [via News Channel 8]
