Man Dies After Falling from Boat on Lake

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a man died but two children were rescued after they apparently fell out of a fishing boat at Saylorville Lake near Des Moines.

The Polk County sheriff's office says the man and the children, ages 6 and 10, were found in the water on Monday afternoon by a person on a sailboat. The person tied off the fishing boat and got the children, but not the man, out of the water.

Officials say the children were wearing life jackets and weren't injured. The man, who was not wearing a life jacket, was in the water for at least 20 minutes. His name hasn't been released.

Deputies say there was no damage to the boat and the lake wasn't choppy. Investigators are trying to determine what happened.
