GLENDALE, Ind. (AP) — The body of a Louisville, Kentucky, man has been recovered from a lake at a southern Indiana fish and wildlife area.

A conservation officer says the body of 25-year-old Jacob Duncan was recovered Saturday from Dogwood Lake at Glendale Fish and Wildlife Area, about 50 miles northeast of Evansville.

Officer Mike Kellner says Duncan and another man took a 14-foot motorboat for a ride Friday night and the craft began taking on water and sank, putting the men into water 10 feet deep. The other man held onto a cooler to stay afloat but lost contact with Duncan.

Kellner says Duncan’s body was found about 30 feet away from where the boat sank. He says Duncan could not swim well.

The other man was treated for hypothermia at a hospital. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
