(KLFY) Agents with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries are investigating a double boating fatality that happened Saturday night in Caldwell Parish.
The bodies of two 15-year-old boys were recovered from Lafourche Lake around midnight, LDWF said.
55-year-old Travis H. McFarlain of Pine Prairie was reportedly operating an 18-foot aluminum vessel and struck a dock.
LDWF agents said on impact, McFarlain and three 15-year-old boy passengers were ejected.
Two of the boys were killed and the third boy was transported to a hospital in stable condition, LDWF said
Agents conducted a breathalyzer on McFarlain and determined that he was intoxicated.
McFarlain was arrested and booked him into the Caldwell Parish Correctional Center for operating a vessel while intoxicated and two counts of vehicular homicide.
The deceased bodies were turned over to the Caldwell Parish Coroner’s Office to determine an official cause of death.
