A boater was killed Saturday in an accident west of Egmont Key, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

According to FWC officer Beryl Martin, Henry Hicks, 59, of Anna Maria, apparently drowned about 4:15 p.m. while retrieving the anchor to a 27-foot Black Watch boat.

Martin said authorities are interviewing other people on the vessel to determine what happened, and it will be up to the Hillsborough County medical examiner’s office to determine cause of death.

The investigation is continuing.
