Carol Hayden, 64, and Eugene Hayden, 88, killed when vehicle crashes into Venice Inlet in Venice, Florida
Emergency personnel from the Venice police and fire departments, Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office underwater dive team, the U.S. Coast Guard and Sea Tow searched for the vehicle for more than two hours before finding the van in about 15 feet of water at about 6:30 p.m., Venice Police Chief Tom Mattmuller said.
The Haydens were residents of Village on the Isle retirement community, which will hold a brief event today to remember the residents and offer a statement.
Anderson said Carol was known as a friendly woman who spent lots of time with friends. Eugene, who went by Gene, enjoyed photography and was the unofficial news reporter at the retirement community.
