DESTIN, Fla. — Authorities say a body pulled from the water of the Florida Panhandle was that of a Mississippi man who apparently drowned. The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office identified the victim Sunday as 43-year-old Roscoe Brooks of Shannon. A witness said Brooks appeared to be in trouble when spotted on a boogie board in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday. A lifeguard and a beach attendant attempted to rescue Brooks, but he was unconscious when they reached him. They attempted CPR when they pulled Brooks ashore. He was pronounced dead at a hospital emergency room. Florida leads the country in drowning deaths of children ages 1-4 years. Annually in Florida, enough children to fill three to four preschool classrooms drown before their fifth birthday. Males accounted for 72% of drowning deaths and non-fatal drowning hospitalizations combined while females accounted for only 28%. White residents accounted for 69% of drowning deaths and non-fatal drowning hospitalizations combined. Black residents accounted for 21% and Other Non-White residents accounted for 9%.
