A weekend in the Florida Keys ended tragically for one high school senior from Miami-Dade after he was thrown off a boat and struck a channel marker.
In an Instagram post, Westminster Christian School confirmed that 18-year-old Lucas Alvarez died in Sunday's crash in the Keys.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission officials say the incident took place Sunday just before 4 p.m. near mile marker 79 and Lower Matecumbe, saying a total of four people were in the boat at the time.
FWC says the boat struck a channel marker - ejecting three of the passengers, with Alvarez suffering fatal injuries to his lower body. The other two passengers ejected were not hurt.
It's unclear how the teens struck a channel marker. A report from the FWC says alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
Alvarez was the captain of the Westminster's lacrosse team. According to the school, all games will be postponed in his honor.
