I don't think they know whether he's dead or not, which is why they're being so cautious.

ETA: Just heard on the scanner "Still movement in the back of the boat." Scanner talk is largely useless, but it does seem like he may still be alive.

I've watched enough movies to know that he can come back to life,
at least a couple of times.

Authorities got a tip from a neighbor who noticed a ladder had been placed next to the boat.

They're clearing civilians from the area. Cops are literally carrying people in their arms away from the scene. And the cops need to get at least one more officer moved because he is in a vulnerable area near the boat.

Can't tell you how many times i've seen the good guy not kick the bad guys weapon clear. Always leads to bad news.

Scanner says there is one family they are having trouble evacuating from the area.

I'm listening to the police scanner right now.

Scanner: Significant movement in the boat. He "sat up and is flailing about."
