1 Man Dead after Boat Capsizes on Kansas Lake

KSAL StaffMay 19, 2014

One man is dead after a boat carrying him and two other people capsized on Tuttle Creek Lake near Manhattan, Kansas.

KMAN-AM reports two men and a woman were in the 10-foot fishing boat when it capsized just after 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon near the mouth of Tuttle Cove. A nearby fisherman pulled a man and the woman out of the water, but couldn’t get to the third.

The body of 25-year-old Junction City resident Matthew Mann was recovered from the lake at 10:25 p.m. after he was located with the help of sonar. The other two were treated at an area hospital and released.

Riley County Police spokesman Matthew Droge says it appears none of the people on the boat were wearing life jackets.
