Boat falls on man in Hyannis

HYANNIS, MASS. (WHDH) - A man was rushed to the hospital Thursday after a boat fell on top of him in Hyannis.

The victim, who is also the boat owner, was injured while working on the vessel at a repair shop on Thornton Drive. He was cutting the boat up into pieces so it could be thrown out. When he tried hoisting a piece of the boat onto a tractor, the boat came loose and fell, leaving him pinned underneath.

Officials said the man was conscious and alert when he was taken to the hospital. He will most likely be kept overnight but is expected to be OK.
