A boat overturned, injuring two people, near the Venice Avenue Bridge, officials said.
According to fire officials, about 4 p.m., the 25-foot boat with two passengers, ages 50 and 28, were traveling through the Intracoastal Waterway when it swerved to avoid a manatee.
The boat beached on the side of the shore, overturning and ejecting both men.
The passengers are being treated for minor injuries.
The boat is leaking fuel from its 80-gallon tank. Firefighters are dispersing the unleaded fuel with water from a firehose.
The public is advised to avoid the scene during cleanup.
