The Progress-Index - - OUT & ABOUT -

A ve­hi­cle with a dead body in­side that had been sub­merged in a Florida canal was dis­cov­ered when wa­ter lev­els were low­ered in prepa­ra­tion for Hur­ri­cane Irma’s heavy rains. The Palm Beach County Sher­iff’s Of­fice said in an email that the ve­hi­cle was found Satur­day in a canal in the south­ern part of the county.

The ve­hi­cle has been re­moved from the canal, and au­thor­i­ties say an au­topsy is planned to de­ter­mine how the per­son in­side the ve­hi­cle died.

The per­son’s iden­tity was not im­me­di­ately known. It’s also not clear how long the ve­hi­cle had been in the canal.
