Today, on our 30th anniversary celebration, we unfortunately experienced our first injury of a masquerader that resulted in a casualty from an accident during the Parade’s approach to the main stage.
It is our understanding that the accident involved a middle aged female masquerader from the mas band, Mascots International, and one of the vehicles providing refreshments to the masquerades. She was treated on the scene and later transported to Kendall Regional Medical Center where she later died from her injuries.
At this time, Miami Dade Police Department is completing the investigation of the accident.
We extend our condolences to her family and members of Mascots International.
