OSAGE BEACH — One man is dead but another managed to swim to safety after they were thrown from a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks.
The Missouri Water Patrol says the two tumbled into the water Thursday when their 18-foot fishing boat struck two cruiser wakes.
The boat's operator, a 39-year-old Kansas man, was able to swim to shore, according to the patrol. But William Ray, 53, of Newcastle, Okla., didn't make it.
A fire boat pulled Ray from the water. He was taken to a hospital where doctors pronounced him dead about 90 minutes after the accident.
