MIAMI (AP) — A man was killed early Sunday and cruise line arrivals were disrupted after a 30-foot (9-meter) boat hit a ferry near Miami, authorities said.
Another man was hospitalized in serious condition after the boat hit the Fisher Island Ferry about 3:40 a.m.
The man was pulled from the water by ferry workers, and he told them about his missing friend before he was taken to a hospital, the Miami Herald reported.
The missing man was later found dead.
The accident happened near Dodge Island, which has a row of cruise ship terminals.
Three cruise lines had to change unloading procedures after The U.S. Coast Guard set up a temporary security zone that limited traffic in and out of PortMiami while the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigates the crash, the newspaper reported.
