MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A 38-foot Catamaran sailboat got stuck under a bridge Monday along the Intracoastal Waterway, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Erika Benitez said.

Benitez said the boat became stuck under the Interstate 195 bridge as the mast got lodged between the bridge spans.

Five people were aboard the boat, but none were injured.

Benitez said a fire boat will remain at the scene until low tide allows the boat to become dislodged from the bridge spans.

Low tide is expected at about 1:30 p.m.
