Two Men Stabbed Near Sandbar Off Key Biscayne
KEY BISCAYNE – (CBSMiami.com) – Two men were stabbed while docked at a popular sandbar off Key Biscayne Sunday evening, said Miami Fire Rescue Spokesman Iggy Carroll.
Miami Police were investigating the events that led to the injuries. The two men were brought in from a sandbar near Marine Stadium and transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.
“I was just trying to help my friends,” said Karen Guzman who only suffered a scratch on her arm when an argument out on a sandbar turned into a major fight sometime after 8 p.m. Her friend had been stabbed.
She said her friend was bleeding so badly, she couldn’t think.
“When I sunk in the water, I got up and he was stabbed,” Guzman told CBS4’s Gio Benitez. “What was I thinking? I wasn’t thinking nothing. I was just trying to get him out of the water.”
She and her friends raced over to the Rickenbacker Marina. She called police.
Guzman said she believes the stabber may have been aiming for her.
“When I got back up, the guy went to stab me, because I hit him twice. And the guy was behind me and he got stabbed,” she said.
Guzman said she doesn’t know why the fight began, but she says she saw who may be responsible and plans to tell police.
The stabbing victims’ identities were not immediately released.
