LAKE BISTINEAU, La. (AP) — Authorities in Louisiana say a 15-year-old boy died after a boat overturned during a fishing trip with his best friend.
The Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office says its search and rescue crews found the body of Hayden Mangum of Elm Grove about 7 a.m. Wednesday.
A news release said the boat overturned about 4 p.m. Tuesday near the Lake Bistineau Spillway. The other teen got safely to shore.
Volunteers and people from several agencies had searched the murky water all night under lights brought by the sheriff’s office.
More than 100 of Mangum’s family members and friends came to a nearby bridge and some stayed through the night.
