UPDATE: Victim Identified In Indian Lake Drowning
UPDATE -- The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has released the identity of the drowning victim at Indian Lake State Park.
According to a preliminary incident report, 75 year old James Lamarr of Waynesfield Ohio drowned while boating with his brother Wednesday.
The report says the motor stalled and Lamarr looked into the hatch and realized the drain plug was not installed. He then went in the water in an attempt to plug it in. He got the plug about 3/4 of the way in, when the boat started to drift away.
Lamarr went under as he was trying to swim towards the boat. His brother was trying to throw him a rope, but was unsuccessful.
Lamarr went under and never resurfaced.
The report states that they are waiting tests to determine whether or not alcohol was a factor.
LAKEVIEW -- The first boating accident of the year has left one man dead. It happened at Indian Lake State Park, around 12:30 Wednesday afternoon.
"I've seen a lot of people drown in this lake," said Stanley Alvinhuts, who has lived near Indian Lake State Park for 61 years.
"One summer just alone they drug five bodies out of this lake where people drowned," said Alvinhuts.
He's seen a lot of tragedy on this body of water, including Wednesday's.
Two men were in a boat when they started having engine trouble.
One man got out to try and fix the problem, and never came back up.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is trying to figure out what happened, but the tragedy has cast a serious shadow on what was to be a beautiful day on the water.
"It's nothing you want to hear, it's nothing good," said Tucker Berg, a boater. "It just comes down to safety first, just remembering all your basics and keeping common sense into play."
A life jacket is number one for everyone on board the boat, but you also want to take other safety precautions while out on the water."
"Safety equipment with your first aide and your air horn and all that," said Berg.
And a last piece of advice from the man who's lived to see so much tragedy.
"I just want to tell people when they're out on Indian Lake: Just be careful," said Alvinhuts.
The victim's name has not been released at this time. Again, investigators are still trying to figure out exactly what caused him to drown.
