BOCA RATON, FL ( (Source: Boca Raton Fire Rescue Media Advisory) — At 4:20PM this afternoon multiple fire rescue units were dispatched to 1 Royal Palm Way in the Boca Bayou community for a 911 call reporting a dock collapse with 13-15 people in the water. The first arriving units found all persons out of the water and accounted for.
Paramedics began to triage the victims and check for injuries while additional checks were made to ensure everyone was out of the water. Boca Raton Fire Rescue transported 2 patients with minor injuries to a local hospital. The individuals were attending a family reunion hosted by a resident of Boca Bayou in the clubhouse.
The families wanted to get a group photo on one of the docks adjacent to the clubhouse. As the family members were lining up on the dock for the photograph the dock collapsed resulting in 13 of the adults falling into the water. As of the writing of this release the cause of the collapse is unknown.
