TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Five people were rescued Sunday from a pair of broken down airboats, according to a release.
Just after 5 p.m., Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews found the boats 10 miles north of Tamiami Trail near SW 8 Street and Old Tamiami Trail.
Being in a remote area, a helicopter with Air Rescue South had to collect the five air boaters and drop them off back on the mainland. Video from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue shows how the crew pulled the boaters into the aircraft one by one.
None of the boaters were hurt.
