Miami Marlins star pitcher Jose Fernandez killed in boating accident


#1

Miami Marlins pitcher José Fernández, one of baseball’s brightest stars, was killed early Sunday in a boating accident, Florida authorities said.
Fernández, who was 24, and two other men were found dead after their 32-foot boat was discovered crashed at the entrance of Miami Harbor, said Fish and Wildlife Commission public information officer Lorenzo Veloz.

Coast Guard personnel out on patrol noticed the vessel upside down on the north end of a rocky jetty shortly after 3:15 a.m., Veloz said at a news conference Sunday morning in Miami. Divers recovered two of the bodies under the boat and the third victim was found on the rocks. The names of the two other victims – also in their 20s – are being withheld until relatives could be notified. The men were personal friends of Fernandez, Veloz said.

While Mr Fernandez had many good qualities and was a great pitcher, he died in an accident while heavily intoxicated with a blood alcohol of .147 and also cocaine in his system, according to the autopsy. It makes the accident even more sad.
