30-Year-Old Man Drowns in Natural Spring, Palm Harbor

PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. – UPDATE: The Mans’s Body Has been Recovered. On Thursday, November 26, 2020, at approximately 1:46 p.m., deputies responded to 2340 Rolling Oaks Drive in Palm Harbor after receiving information that a man had drowned in a natural spring.

Once on-scene, deputies learned 30-year-old Trevor Harris had been free-diving in the spring with a snorkel and did not resurface.

Clearwater Fire & Rescue and Palm Harbor Fire Rescue divers attempted to recover Harris but were unable due to the depth and visibility of the water.

Deputies from the Sheriff’s Office Dive Team also responded to the location but were unable to recover Harris’ body. Deputies learned Harris had swam in the natural spring, known as the “Blue Sink,” over fifty times. The spring is approximately 145 feet in depth and is about 600 feet by 800 feet at the bottom.

Impairment does not appear to be a factor and foul play is not suspected. Recovery efforts are still underway as the investigation continues.
