The sports world is mourning the death of Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez, who was killed in a tragic boating accident early Sunday morning.
The 24-year-old was cruising in a 32-foot boat when it crashed into a jetty in Miami. Two other people were killed in the accident and according to reports, Fernandez died on impact. It’s also being reported there’s no indication that drugs or alcohol played a part in the crash.
Last week, the Cuban native, who was drafted 11th overall by the Marlins in 2011, announced this he and his girlfriend were expecting their first child together.
Several professional athletes took to social media to express their sadness following news of the horrific accident, including Kyrie Irving and Magic Johnson.
