October 1, 2018

LAVALETTE, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia state police say a man who fell out of his boat has been found dead.

The Huntington Herald-Dispatch reports 67-year-old William Taylor fell out of his boat in Beech Fork Lake Saturday afternoon. State police Sgt. E. A. Blankenship says Taylor was with a family member who was unable to get him out of the water.

A search for Taylor began that day but was suspended due to darkness. Blankenship says Taylor’s body was found the next morning when crews resumed the search.

Blankenship says Taylor’s cause of death is accidental drowning.
