Divers were working to recover a man from the water after two boats collided Monday night off Key Biscayne, sending four people to the hospital.

The crash happened at around 7:22 p.m. by Bear Cut Bridge, according to City of Miami Fire Rescue Lt. Pete Sanchez. Two boats -- one with seven aboard and the other with one person -- collided.

The missing 33-year-old man was on board with the party of seven and is believed to have gone overboard, Sanchez said. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, the Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission joined the City of Miami in what was updated to a recovery mission after more than 18 divers searched multiple times in the span of two hours.

One woman was transported with a leg injury, along with a man with an abdominal injury and another person with non-life-threatening injuries.

All three were on board with the group. The captain of the other boat was transported with a leg injury.
