OKALOOSA COUNTY - Authorities are trying to figure out how a man came out of his life jacket and drowned after being tossed from a jet ski.
Andrew and Brandy Clayton got caught in the wake from a passing boat on the Choctawhatchee Bay Saturday afternoon.
The pair were pulled from the water by some nearby boaters and taken to an area hospital.
Andrew died, his wife Brandy survived.
Both were wearing lifejackets.
But Florida Fish and Wildlife says Andrew's jacket came off in the water.
They found it with two of the three buckles unsnapped.
