His mother Sherri Telnas had been convicted a decade ago in Montana for trying to drown the 12-year-old when he was an infant. She was sentenced to two consecutive 10-year sentences, eventually placed on probation and released in 2014.

His wife, walking ahead of her family, “glanced backward and discovered that her husband and 8-year-old child were struggling in the water,” authorities said.

Though she immediately “jumped into the water” to help, she was only able to grab her daughter, who was passed to her by her husband.

“Unfortunately, the father continued to struggle and disappeared into the water” around 5:38 p.m., the statement read.

By approximately 9:54 p.m., a multi-agency search team called into action by the Marine Emergency Response Team — including the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit and Aviation Unit, the United States Coast Guard, the Florida Fish Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Sanibel and Captiva Fire Departments — were able to finally find Zakrewski’s body.

Rip current deaths are common in Florida. Last year alone, 27 people drowned in the state’s currents, according to the National Weather Service. This year, 12 people (excluding Zakrewski) have died off Florida beaches in rip current deaths — nearly half of the 28 reported nationwide.

The National Weather Service had issued a rip current advisory along the beach where the family had been strolling on Tuesday.

Said currents are not obvious to the naked eye, cautioned Lee County Sheriff’s Sgt. Russell Park. “Pay particular attention to areas around sandbars,” he told WBBH, per NBC News. “The water is coming in and it’s got to go out somewhere but you can’t always see it.”

“Wait until the conditions improve, don’t risk it,” Park added. “It’s not worth risking anybody’s life.”

Those who are caught in a rip current should swim parallel to shore, slowly moving back to land at an angle, the National Ocean Service advised.
