Yacht runs aground while being towed in Fort Lauderdale

By Ian Margol - Reporter

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - It was a scary moment for boaters in Fort Lauderdale Tuesday afternoon, when a yacht ran aground and began dangerously listing to one side. 

According to people at the scene, the boat was being towed out of the docks and hit a sandbar. 

The boat tilted so significantly that onlookers say one of its propellers was even sticking out of the water.

Fortunately, just a little while later, the tide rose enough for the boat to straighten out.

It wasn't immediately clear whether anyone was injured.
