These Boaters Didn't Pay Attention to the Tides

Occurred on August 27, 2023 / Tampa, Florida, USA

Info from Licensor: "Boaters at a local Tampa beach club on 8/27/23 didn't pay attention to the tides when they anchored their boat in the water. As the day progressed, the tides went out so far that it left the boat stranded on the beach sand. Someone thought that tying a few lines to the boat and pulling it off the sand with their jet skis could tow it off of the sand. Unfortunately, when they pulled the boat from the back and the sides (with ropes), the boat turned on its side just as it was hitting the water and capsized, eventually filling up with water and sinking."
