Charlie Jackson, Jason Cobb, Florida men feared dead after bachelor party boating accident in gator infested waters

Search and rescue teams in Florida are hunting for two bachelor party revellers feared dead after they were ‘ejected’ off a boat into alligator-infested waters, authorities stated Sunday.


Charlie Jackson, 26, and Jason Cobb, 30, both of Osteen, disappeared in the early hours of Saturday after going fishing in a 15ft boat on a lake best known for the large gators.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission continued searching Sunday as Jackson’s boat was found.

No signs of either men as turned up yet.

Lieutenant Jeff Hudson of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told the Orlando Sentinel‘It’s come up negative.’

Mr Jackson’s father Bill, 55, admitted: ‘It doesn’t look real good for them. I’m just facing reality.’

Authorities planned to resume the search of the lake Monday morning with the helicopter and boats and ATVs along the marshy shores.
