As the winds picked up, several swimmers struggled to stay afloat, and although some were able to swim to shore and others were pulled out of the water, one man died. The drowning victim was identified on Wednesday at 20-year-old St. Petersburg resident
Authorities also added that two people were cut by the boat’s propellers as they helped bring his body back into the boat, while three others nearly drowned in the dangerous incident.
