Authorities say that on Saturday man had been riding an inner tube being dragged by a personal watercraft near the Hillsboro Inlet. He had wrapped the rope connecting the two around his arm when a large wave apparently struck the inner tube and the watercraft. The force of the wave tightened the rope with such force that it cut through the man's arm.
Pompano Beach Fire-Rescue spokeswoman the man was conscious and alert after the accident.
