A woman from Wood River is among three people who died yesterday (Monday) while snorkeling in the Florida Keys. 64 year old Julia Thien reportedly became unresponsive while on a snorkeling trip with her family on Monday. She was brought on board a boat, but attempts to revive her failed. Thien was pronounced dead later at an area hospital.
Two other people also died in separate snorkeling accidents on Monday in the Florida Keys; a 71 year old man from San Antonio, Texas, and a 72 year old man from Schaumburg, Illinois. All three deaths are under investigation and autopsies are planned.
