9-year-old boy airlifted after injury at Haulover Inlet

MIAMI, Fla. – A 9-year-boy has suffered a traumatic injury at Haulover Inlet and has been airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Sky 10 was over the scene as Miami-Dade Fire Rescue rushed out to the sandbars at Haulover Inlet on Thursday around 2:30 p.m. and rushed to get the boy out of the water and onto their boat.

He was on a gurney as they tended to him. Fire rescue drove the boat to shore where the child was taken by helicopter to JMH.

The boy may have been cut by a propeller, but that has not been confirmed.
