COPY-Two die, two hospitalized after boat capsizes in canal

Associated Press - June 25, 2007 10:54 AM ET

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Two people were killed and two others are in the hospital after their boat capsized in West Palm Beach.

Authorities say Juan Reyes and Esmelen Maldonado were rushed to a hospital last night but died a short time later.

A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman says Reyes' daughter, Jeni, and Carlos Cabajal are in good condition at the hospital.

Authorities say the boat capsized when 1 of the men caught a fish. Rescue divers pulled 2 of the victims from the water a short time later. Cabajal swam to shore on his own.

An investigation is ongoing.
