Five injured in boating accident in Florida

LEE COUNTY: After a boating accident, five men on a business trip from Fort Wayne, Indiana were ejected and all of them had to paddle to shore on a boat's engine hood from the Monroe Channel.The boaters ran into a pole out on the water. Emergency workers say they probably hit the pole because it was not lit. Officials on the scene added the men actually had to paddle for over two hours, while sitting on top of the engine hatch, just to get back to shore.
