STUART, Fla. – Video footage captured an unmanned boat that was out of control just south of Stuart.
Deputies said three men were doing a photo shoot on the boat late Friday afternoon, which was in the St. Lucie River, and somehow fell overboard.
Footage captured of the 24-foot boat shows it speeding in circles around the victims, who were forced to dive underwater in order to avoid injury.
The vessel then went airborne and came to a stop after hitting two concrete docs.
The three men were able to swim to a nearby sailboat and are expected to be okay; one of them suffered minor injuries.
