Woman severely injured at Fort Myers Beach after being struck by boat propeller

FORT MYERS, Fla.– What started as another day on the boat, ended with a woman in the hospital being treated for serious injuries

According to Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation, 6 adults were on a boat along Fort Myers Beach when a woman fell into the water from the bow. She was struck by the propeller.

Those onboard took the 29-year-old woman to the Pink Shell Resort boat dock. She was then transported to Lee Memorial with serious injuries.

“When you’re part of a group, you have to watch and look out for each other and make sure no one is doing anything stupid because in an instant man that stupidness turns into injury,” said frequent beach goer, Christopher Fous.

Experts urge you to take precautions when boarding a boat.

“If you are going to be near the bow or front of the boat, make sure you got a good handle on where you are, stay seated, and don’t allow yourself to get in a position where you can possibly fall into the water. It can be tragic” said Adam Brown with Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation.

This incident remains under investigation by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation. Count on NBC2 to provide additional updates as they become available.
