Golfer may have drowned searching for ball in pond, deputies say
OLDSMAR, Fla. – Hermilo Jazmines, 74, died on Sunday after deputies found him in a pond at the East Lake Woodlands Country Club, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
According to investigators, Jazmines teed off at hole number three around 7:37 a.m. The friend he was golfing with last saw him looking for his ball on the green. Jazmines’ golf cart was parked on the cart path and his putter was found lying on the ground near the water, but his friend couldn’t find him, so deputies were called in to help located the missing golfer.
Deputies and members of the Oldsmar Fire Department searched the nearby wooded area and the edge of the pond. The PCSO dive team joined the search and found Jazmines submerged in the water near his putter. He was pronounced dead on the scene.Sponsored Links5 Years From Now, You’ll Probably Wished You’d Grabbed This StockThe Motley Fool
