A man died after a front-end loader fell into a canal Monday morning near the 4000 block of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

PBSO identified him as Peter Kubeck, 48, of Palm Springs.

The front-end loader veered off the canal bank, slid sideways and flipped upside down into the water, the sheriff's office said.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue divers found Kubeck. It's not clear how long he was in the water.

He was transported to Palms West Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office detectives are investigating the death.
