MONROE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana man has been found dead nearly a week after being ejected from a boat.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said in a news release that the body of Earl Clack was found Tuesday in Black Bayou.
The 48-year-old was with another man March 11 when their boat hit a wake, causing the kill switch to detach from the motor and the vessel to make a hard turn.
Both were thrown from the boat but the other man was wearing a personal flotation device and was rescued by a good Samaritan.
Officials say Clack was not wearing a personal flotation device when his body was found.
