Two people died after separate boat accidents in Central Florida over the Fourth of July weekend.

Nicholas Kenley’s body was found around 7 a.m. Monday on Lake Yale in Eustis after Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission got a call about a possible boating accident around 3:15 p.m. Saturday, FWC spokesman Chad Weber said in an email.

One person in the accident was found and safely brought to shore, Weber said.

“The FWC and Lake County Sheriff’s Office have been conducting search and rescue efforts from boats on the water utilizing side scan sonar as well as from the air with fixed wing aircraft and helicopters,” Weber said.

The incident is still under investigation, Weber said.

In Osceola County, the body of Shawn Rand, of Port St. Lucie, was found at 10 a.m. Sunday in East Lake Tohopekaliga after it was reported Saturday evening an adult man had fallen from a pontoon boat and not resurfaced, Weber said.

The investigation into that incident is also ongoing.
