Vt. man drowns off Florida Keys

Posted: Updated:

Sheriffs say a body found floating in the waters off the Florida Keys is that of a Vermonter.

The Monroe County Sheriff's office says early Sunday morning, two people fishing off a bridge reported seeing Mark Parent, 55, of Enosburgh, floating in the water, yelling for help.

They tried to throw a rope to him but were unsuccessful. Rescuers searched by air and by sea to find him, but his body wasn't found until Monday.

Detectives say they believe his death was an accident.
