Orange County Sheriff's Office officials have identified the man who died following a Friday, Aug. 20, boating accident in Windermere.

Sheriff's Office investigators said the body of Alejandro Urbina Sanchez, 26, was located and recovered at about 11:01 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, from R.D. Keene Park, 10900 Chase Road, Windermere. There is no foul play suspected, officials said.

According to earlier reports, at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 20, deputies responded to the location in reference to a boating accident. Sanchez was at R.D. Keene Park with a friend. He was riding on a Jet Ski and fell off. He did not resurface. Orange County Fire Rescue crews responded and deployed a dive team that evening, but the search effort was halted because of the lack of light. It resumed in the morning.
