Florida Snorkler Death.jpgA Florida snorkeler was run over and killed in Jupiter Inlet. Andrew Harris and Nicole Kapfer were snorkeling on June 8th when two motor boats entered the Jupiter Inlet. The lead boat was able to avoid the snorkelers. Unfortunately, the second boat did not. Both boats stopped to render assistance after the accident. Harris, a 27-year-old graduate of Florida State University, was air lifted to St. Mary’s Medical Center where he later died from his injuries. Kapfer luckily only sustained minor injuries.
