Boaters in Brevard County had a close call Sunday after their watercraft broke down.

  • Boat runs aground in Brevard's Jetty Park
  • Truck had to drag boat out of the water
  • Boaters were OK, authorities said

Strong winds swept the small boat close to the large rocks of Jetty Park.

A tow truck was called to drag the boat out of the water.

Dozens of bundled up beachgoers had a front row seat for all the action.

“A lot of people down here watching this, the whole episode,” Gloria Zalos said.

The people who were on board the boat are OK.

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are investigating.
