Person drowns at construction site on Pratt Whitney Rd

At 9am crews responded to reports of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle near the 4000 block of Seminole Pratt Whitney Rd.

First arriving crews reported this was not a pedestrian accident but a piece of construction equipment that had fallen in a body of water and the driver could not be found.

Fire rescue divers were deployed into the water and after an  exhaustive search they located the victim who was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Sadly, the driver was pronounced dead once he arrived at Palms West Hospital.

Detectives from the Violent Crimes Division and Crime Scene Investigators are on scene investigating this accidental death further.
