Officials are searching for a fourth victim after a boat crashed into a Miami Beach jetty and capsized.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is leading the search for the fourth person after two people were killed and another was injured in the incident.

Crews are searching the area around Government cut for the fourth victim.

Two people were found dead on the rocks at the scene while the third was transported to the hospital as a trauma alert.

The crash happened on the same channel where Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez and two other men were killed after their boat hit a jetty. An investigation determined drugs and alcohol were factors in the September 2016 crash.

In a separate boating-related incident in Miami, an investigation is underway after rescue crews received a call about a person in the water who possibly fell of a boat, officials said.

City of Miami Fire Rescue said the incident happened Saturday night at the Grove Harbour Marina in Coconut Grove.

Rescue officials said one person was found dead. An investigation continues.
