When the wind carried several items out of Jeremy Gunter's boat -- and into Otter Creek Reservoir -- his 12-year-old son, jumped into the water to retrieve them.
Tragically, the boy was not wearing a life jacket, and the water was extremely cold.
When the boy got into trouble, Gunter jumped in after him -- also with no life jacket.
Authorities say the man succeeded in getting his son back to the boat -- but then disappeared under the water.
Search divers located his body several hours later.
