The lake does not appear to have boat access, and it is surrounded by businesses.

“Most lakes have navigational markers, or even like in channels, you know, out in the Keys or out on the Bay. There’s also mapping the hazards that are underneath. You don’t know what’s submerged under the surface, so it’s just so sad to see somebody had this happen to them,” he said.
