Elaine Mehler 56 from Englewood Drowns in Biscayne Bay in Florida


A 56 year old Englewood Orthodox Jewish woman drowned yesterday afternoon while swimming in the waters of Biscayne Bay.

 56 year old Elaine Mehler, an employee at Three Pillars Recruiting, was taking part in a company retreat and was on a boat near Miami’s Jungle Island when she decided to go for a swim sometime after 4 PM.

Witnesses said that she disappeared in the water, prompting calls to both 911 and the Coast Guard called to help locate the missing woman.

Mehler was located near Jungle Island at approximately 5:15 PM and airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

Chesed Shel Emes worked through the night to preserve kavod hames and to arrange for Mehler to be transported back to New Jersey on Wednesday evening.

The funeral will be held on Thursday with burial to follow in Israel.
