VICTOR, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Water Patrol says a Moberly man drowned at Mark Twain Lake after he became entangled in a net and fell overboard.
The patrol says William Kendall died Thursday, his 78th birthday, near Victor in Monroe County.
Kendall was standing in the bow of a bass boat using a net to catch bait when his feet became entangled and he fell overboard.
The water patrol says he was not wearing a life jacket. Water patrol officers recovered his body about two hours later in 30 feet of water.
