Victim identified after boat sinks at lake

LAKEVIEW, Ohio – Authorities have identified a man who died after a boat carrying nine people sank in a western Ohio lake.

A coroner said the victim was Joshua Keith, 22, of Bellefontaine.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said no one on the boat was wearing a life jacket when it began sinking on Indian Lake just around midnight Sunday.

State watercraft officers said crews from area fire departments were able to pull the other eight people from the water. Keith's body was recovered after about a two-hour search.
