Not only we get angry when a boat hits a diver… but even more when the cowards try to escape…
Police are searching for a hit-and-run boater who struck a scuba diver Friday afternoon off Fort Lauderdale beach.
Emergency crews took Perry Anderson, 37, to Broward General Medical Center with injuries that are not life threatening, Fort Lauderdale police said.
Anderson and two other divers had kayaked out from the beach and attached a dive flag to the kayak. While diving, a single-engine boat hit Anderson and continued south without stopping, Fort Lauderdale Det. Travis Mandell said.
Witnesses described the boat as about 20 to 23 feet long, with a blue and green stripe on a white hull. The boat’s driver is between 40 and 50 years old and has long blond hair.
Authorities ask anyone with information about the incident to call the department’s marine unit at 954-828-5440 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
let’s get the cowards!!!!!!
