FLOOD: Cane Carrying Elderly Man Slips Into Canal, Dies

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In what is being considered the second drowning related to the floods in Palm Beach County, 90-year-old Harry Krulewitz is dead after walking into a canal.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating the death, says Krulewitz was walking in waste deep water — with a cane — in a flooded area of Kings Point. He accidentally veered off the path, slipped into a canal and went under water.

Rescuers — including the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Dive Team — found Kurlewitz submerged. He was rushed to Delray Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
