The incident happened where Loxahatchee Road comes to a dead end and two canal systems intersect.

First responders said two airboats collided and several people went into the water.

Sky 10 was above the scene just after 11:45 a.m. as one of the airboats was turned on its side and on fire.

First responders said two people were seriously injured in the crash, one person sustained a minor injury and two people were being evaluated at the scene.

Multiple airboat tour companies operate in the area, but authorities have not confirmed which company or companies were involved in the incident.
