Florida boat crash injures 10, sinks one boat

Florida boat crash: Two boats collided Sunday evening in Biscayne National Park, off Miami. No one was killed in the Florida boat crash.

Ten people went to the hospital after two boats collided near Elliott Key in Biscayne National Park.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/13sBszA ) reports the crash happened about 6:30 p.m. Sunday when a 36-foot Carrera powerboat with about 16 people aboard hit a boat carrying two people.

Officials say the second boat sank. Authorities were not certain what kind of boat it was.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says "we're very fortunate no one was killed."

Authorities say one boater was airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center. Nine others were also taken there.

The Herald reports the Carrera was towed to Black Point Marina in Cutler Bay.

Pino says investigators are trying to determine the cause of the crash.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
