Three people have been taken to hospital after a famed Brisbane River boat crashed into a jetty and had its floor split in half.
The Kookaburra Queen 2 vessel had been completing a journey with 60 people on-board when it crashed into the Eagle Street Pier today, splintering its outer railing and floor level.
In the commotion caused by the damages, a woman aged in her 30s fell through the cracks created in the floor and landed on the lap of a fellow passenger – aged in her 70s – while she had been sitting on the boat's toilet.
"The floor just parted and my wife went down and I fell on the deck," the woman's husband told 9News.
Other passengers then said they rushed to help the two women after the fall.
