BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – A man’s body washed up on the shoreline of the Indian River in Brevard County on Wednesday — his boat was seen taking on water.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is investigating to learn what went wrong.
So far, the agency says the single-vessel incident happened along Rockledge Drive. Conditions were windy all day, but there is no word yet on whether that was a factor.
Neighbors knew something was wrong, because the whole area was taped off. FWC agents used a makeshift fence to hide the body from public view, because this is such a wide open area.
“I can tell you, usually when the weather is like this, people aren’t out there — when it’s this windy,” said Clint Wilson,” because it will catch you quick.”
