An elderly couple was found 'floating in the weeds' after a boat they were fishing in was discovered in a Florida swamp.

Archer James Adams III, 76, and Paula Adams, 76, both died from accidental drowning, according to the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner's Office. 

The office added that additional details surrounding their death are still a mystery, the Sun Sentinel reports. 

The couple's empty 15-ft Gheenoe boat was found by a passer-by boater on Saturday, who found the vessel while at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge in Palm Beach County. 

The passer-by then discovered the couple's bodies and called for help, according to the Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department.
