Lighthouse Point Boater Dies After Falling Off Vessel

Chopper 6 was over the scene of a fatal boating incident that took place at Lighthouse Point Friday evening.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officials say 50-year-old Jay Cohen was attempting to back off a vessel from a floating dock behind his home when he fell into the water.

When police divers discovered and recovered Cohen's body, they determined his critical injuries were a result of him falling between the boat's engines.

FWC says it will be investigating the incident.
