BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (WFLA) — A beach body missing from a beach near Boynton Beach was found Wednesday afternoon.
The woman was spotted wandering on to the sand beach, as her husband was on the boat fishing. He heard a loud boom, looked down and saw a large break in the sand near the water.
His wife, 35-year-old Jennifer Johnson, was later found lying face-down on a sandbank on the east end of Boynton Beach State Park.
She had been walking along the beach and did not appear to be seriously injured.
“This was an incredibly sad story, tragic accident,” Boynton Beach Police Chief David Gulland told WFLA. “It’s hard to believe that the woman that was on the boat with us at the time was in such bad shape because she has been through such hard times. I could say that’s how it is, but I don’t know how to. We never did give up. When we found her, the whole city went from our minds, our hearts and h바카라사이트earts. It was the toughest thing we’ve ever done in the years that we’ve been here.”
Johnson said that she didn’t want to leave and kept walking. As she went, the sound of the boat pulling up and leaving startled her. When they reached their boat and stoppe우리카지노d to see her, they realized she was gone. She called 911 and her husband immediately called the Coast Guard.
“He was like, ‘Where’s her?’ I was like, ‘She’s not here!’ And it took them like five minutes to get our boat to the Coast Guard,” Johnson said.
Johnson was taken to a local hospital where sh바카라사이트e was pronounced dead.
Friends of the woman began gathering signatures for a money in her memory, which can be made by calling Boynton Beach High School on Wednesday at 954-846-7140, by dialing 954-772-1237, or using the “Give Now” button at the bottom of any of their social media platforms.
