Boat-Crash-Kills-1-2-injured-300x163A personal watercraft crashed into a boat on Sunday at approximately 8:00 p.m. on Lake Louise in Windermere, Florida. Larry Marin, 37, the operator of the personal watercraft was pronounced dead upon arrival at a nearby hospital.  Glorimar Correa, 40, the passenger on the personal watercraft and William Bryant, 39, the operator of the boat were both transferred to Orlando Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.  Per reports, the watercraft crashed into the boat with such force that it sank the personal watercraft.  Witness, Carina Lee Rodriguez said her friends rescued the victims from the water and took them ashore.  She reported the female victim could not breath and couldn’t feel her legs and the man, presumably Marin, was bleeding.  Orange County Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit responded to the scene and continues to investigate.
