A shocking video has captured the moment two passengers being thrown off their speedboat like rag dolls after the powerboat plows into a large wake at high speed.

Two members of the University of Florida Bass Fishing Team, Hunter Bland and Connor Young, were dramatically thrown from their speeding boat and into Lake Seminole while participating in a contest on January 14.

The video starts with this psalm “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24) and has a story to tell.

At the beginning of the video we see two male boaters steering their speeding boat into the lake and enjoying their ride. There doesn’t seem to be too many wave ripples in the water, however, moments later boat's hydraulic steering system sends them flying overboard.

Watch as they are ejected from their boat and sent flying into the water. Luckily, they were both wearing life jackets and only left them with a few bumps and bruises.

Video of the incident shows the pair in their bass boat, which was doing a reported 57 mph when a steering fail caused it to swerve dramatically, throwing both students overboard due to the malfunction of the hydraulic steering system. Luckily, neither of the two was injured!

Thank you to FLW for extensive safety checks and to the Good Lord for watching out for us! Remember, always wear your lifejackets and kill switches! God Bless!
