LAKE WORTH, FL (WFLX) - The body of one man, who fell off his jet ski Saturday afternoon, was recovered later in the night.

PBSO responded to Lake Osborne at about 5:25 p.m. after receiving a call about two individuals operating a jet ski falling into the lake.

Both individuals were not wearing life jackets. One of them did not resurface after the jet ski flipped. Police say he did not know how to swim.

A search was initiated and the Florida Wildlife Conservation was able to locate the deceased victim with the help of sonar equipment at about 11:05 p.m. 

The deceased was taken to the PBC Medical Examiner's office. 

This is an open investigation that is being followed up by PBSO detectives.
