Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio asked the U.S. Coast Guard and Army Corps of Engineers to investigate Wednesday the Government Cut jetty where Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez and two others were killed in a boat crash last weekend.

“While our hearts are heavy with grief for the numerous lives lost every year on the water, we can do more to save others,” Rubio said in his letter to federal officials.

The jetty off Miami Beach is poorly lit and mostly submerged at high tide, according to reports. Boaters frequently have problems navigating around it, experts said.
