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.

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. Luckily, neither of the two were injured.

The accident was caused by the hydraulic steering assembly coming apart.
