Man Dies After Hitting Head On Bridge, Falling In Canal

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man who hit his head on a low bridge and fell into a canal has died.

Scott Keegan’s mother, Nancie Keegan, told The Palm Beach Post that her son stood up while on a boat with a group of friends on Dec. 21 and was knocked into the water. Emergency divers located the 36-year-old man after 20 minutes, and took him to the hospital. He died the next morning.

Nancie Keegan said the accident happened on Keegan’s way back from a restaurant, where the boat’s owner had taken him to thank him for helping work on the vessel.

Boynton Beach police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater says police are still investigating Keegan’s death.
