A man is dead following a personal watercraft crash in Miami over the weekend.

WSVN.com reports that the man died after he crashed a Sea-Doo into the Miami Marine Stadium Saturday evening. A witness to the crash told WSVN that the crash was “crazy,” saying “We heard a loud bang, so we went over there, and the dude was over here, and he fell off the Jet Ski after he hit the wall.” 

Good Samaritans attempted to save the victim, said Officer Ronald Washington with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “They tried to pump the guy back, and it was not successful while we were there,” he said. Authorities rushed the victim to the hospital where doctors later pronounced him dead. 

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating the crash. In particular, they are looking into the events that led up to the crash.
