JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - A man who was just married dies while swimming Thursday at Dubois Park in Jupiter. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as 46-year-old Michael Manna. According to bystanders and his Facebook page, Manna just wrapped up his honeymoon.

Manna had been snorkeling in an old river channel at the park. Part of the channel near the Jupiter Inlet is a designated swimming area and watched by county lifeguards. The area where Manna was swimming is not guarded.

When people near him noticed he wasn't moving, a nurse started performing CPR and others ran for help. Lifeguards responding from the nearby swimming area and Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue medics took over the rescue effort.

"The patient was in cardiac arrest on our arrival," said Fire-Rescue Captain Brad Ouellette. He said Manna never had a pulse. Manna was pronounced dead at Jupiter Medical Center. The Sheriff's Office says an autopsy will determine the cause of death.

Captain Ouellette and lifeguard supervisor Chuck Price said it was tough getting to Manna because of the thick mangrove vegetation along the channel.

Price said the tragedy is another reminder to swim in guarded areas. "An unguarded area, you're always taking a chance," he said. "There are people back there. We can't hear them. We can't see them. It's a good distance from where we are." Price also urged people use a buddy system around water.

Cheryl Caserta's friend was the nurse who started performing CPR. "It was just sad," she said. "Everyone's having fun, and here's this man that was snorkeling and passed away."
