Brevard County Ocean Rescue told Local 6 that a 15-year-old boy was transported to the hospital after being hit in the head by a flying canopy on Sunday.

Ocean Rescue said umbrellas, canopies, floaties and even kayaks were sent flying when a 'gustnado' spawned on Cocoa Beach.

About 800 people on the beach were cleared because of flying debris.

Ocean Rescue said it was drizzling Sunday when suddenly a gust of wind started taking rotation around 3:20 p.m., causing what National Weather Service is calling a 'gustnado.'

Witnesses describe it as chaotic, but breathtaking.

"So, we start to kind of look over our tent, and I looked over my shoulder and I saw the spinning vortex, like, I'm talking crazy twister."

One woman said, "When it came down the corner people just started screaming, running for safety because there were actually people in the water as well."

Witnesses said it was on the sand for about 10 seconds, then went over the water for about another 20 seconds before it dissipated.

No word on how the 15-year-old is doing.
