Man dies after snorkel trip
A 53-year-old Englewood, Florida man died after being removed from the water during a snorkel trip in the Lower Keys Tuesday.
Kale Dailey was snorkeling in Sawyer Channel with a group of people at approximately 11:24 a.m. and stated he was not feeling well while in the water and wanted to return to the private vessel.
His condition worsened and others helped him to the boat whereupon 911 was called.

Dailey was pronounced dead at the scene.
Foul play is not expected to be a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
Autopsy results are pending.
