DESTIN, Fla. (AP) -- One person is dead after being thrown from a racing boat near Crab Island in Destin.

Four people were onboard a 30-foot vessel when it crashed Saturday afternoon.

Three people were rescued from the water but a fourth man could not immediately be found.

Rescue crews found the man's body several hours later.

The accident took place as the Emerald Coast Poker Run was under way, but a spokesman for the event says the wrecked boat was not one of those registered to participate.

The cause of the crash has not yet been determined. No names of those involved have been released.
