Jamey Mosch on being lost in Everglades
Hear about his 'dumb mistake' and struggle ...
Jamey Mosch, the hunter who was lost in the Everglades for four days before being found by rescuers from DeSoto County, died suddenly March 9 in Fort Myers.
An obituary for Mosch does not say how he died. He was 34.
In 2009, Mosch became separated from a group of friends who were hunting off Turner River Road just north of the Alligator Alley portion of Interstate 75 in the Big Cypress National Preserve. He wound up being lost in the Everglades for four days were he was stalked by a panther; lost his clothes and much of his gear in a patch of quicksand; and survived by eating raw catfish and bullfrogs.
At the time, the doctors who treated him after the incident said they didn’t expect he would suffer any long-term side effects from his time in the Everglades.
Funeral services are planned for 4 p.m. Saturday at the Walter J. Kent Funeral Home, 858 Lake St., Elmira, N.Y.
