It happened at Kissimmee river, it was not airboat vs. airboat. It was airboat vs. duck boat. Heard he had a head injury. Passenger on airboat I heard was ejected, hope he pulls through. Prayers for speedy recovery.

It happened at the mouth of the river, where you leave the pond and cut across the river to the shelter. Talked to a buddy today that said the injured guy is going to pull thru.

The pond that we launch at at okeetantie. Leave there head towards the river, there is a pass that cuts to the river instead of going out in the open lake. The shelter is on the point directly across the river.

From what I know, he didn't hit the prop. He hit the his head on boat on the way out or the other boat. boats hit side to side, don't know if one turned wrong or what. Glad everyone will recover.
