An East Naples man was killed on August 5th in a boating accident after he was thrown into another vessel near Keewaydin Island.
Emil Dan Prunean, 31, originally from Medias Romania, suffered fatal injuries as a result of the accident. There were no other injuries or any signs of alcohol consumption reported.
Emil came from Romania with his elder sister about three years ago. Like a lot of young Romanian immigrants they were hard working and trying to achieve the dream of a better life. Emil and his sister lived and worked in the local area. Their father passed away eight weeks ago in his hometown, a small industrial city in central Romania.
Due to the family’s economic situation, they are unable to return Emil’s body to his homeland for a proper burial. An account was opened for donations at Centennial Bank at 615 E. Elkcam Circle on Marco Island. Checks should be made payable to his sister Anca C Dobrota. Contact 239- 259 -1461 for information regarding donations.
