Rumors on Twitter that Jose Feenandez has been killed in a boating accident. No comment from the team yet. I hope it is just a rumor; otherwise it's horrible and heartbreaking.

Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez is among three people who were killed in a boat crash Sunday morning off Miami Beach.

The Marlins confirmed Fernandez, 24, as one of the fatalities, with details of the 3 a.m. EDT accident involving a 30-foot boat still sketchy as of early morning. According to the Miami Herald, emergency workers continued to search for more victims near Government Cut and South Pointe Park.

“They found a boat that was up against the jetties,” Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Todd Garofalo told WSVN. “They did do an initial search and they found three victims — two on top of the water, one underneath the boat and they had unfortunately passed away.”

damn. 

Isn't the story that he saved his mom's life  during his escape from Cuba by going into the water?  Sadly ironic how boats figured in his life.
