The father jumped into the lake while one of the sons called 911. 

The boy was not wearing a personal flotation device when he fell into the water. 

In Florida, children 6 years old and younger are required to wear a flotation device while a watercraft is moving. Boats are required to have flotation devices onboard for anyone older than 6.
