POINT BREEZE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a 66-year-old New York man has died after the fishing boat he was on capsized in Lake Ontario.

The Orleans County sheriff’s office says Carl Hazel couldn’t be revived after he and another man were pulled from the water on Saturday.

The sheriff’s office says their boat took on water in 5-to-7-foot waves. It capsized about 9 miles from the shore.

The Coast Guard says the men were in the water for about two hours.
