According to WESH NBC 2, the body of a boater who went missing February 20 after a Lake Jesup boating accident was recovered later that same day by local authorities.

The two men involved in the wreck crashed their boat into one of the pilings of the State Road 417 Bridge over the lake. One of the men, in his 60s, disappeared into the water after the wreck, while the other was able to stay above water by clinging to the boat. Two fishermen who heard the boaters’ screams for help rescued the man clinging to the crashed boat.
