Man drowns during boating accident
(McQueeney) --  A man is dead after a day of fishing in McQueeney.  Texas Game Warden Kevin Frazier says the drowning occurred just after 1 p.m. Wednesday on Lake Placid just south of the McQueeney Dam.

"Initially, it was a boat accident with possibly a missing person and then later on, we found out that it was two men that were fishing in a small jon boat on Lake Placid. Basically from what I understand now, we're still investigating everything, but some how the boat flipped over and both men went into the water. Both men were wearing their life jackets fortunately, but somehow one of the individuals, they were thrown into the water. They got to the bank, but one of the individuals was unresponsive when they got to the bank. The passenger of the boat went onto the land, tried to seek some help. By the time first responders got here, the owner of the boat had deceased, passed away," said Frazier.

Frazier says the accident was reported just off the bank in the 100 block of Rosewood Trail. He says the second person in the boat was not injured in the incident.
 
"It was good that they both had life jackets on. It may have saved one life -- unfortunately not two, but we're not sure what the cause of death is at this point," said Frazier.
 
Frazier says alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the accident.
 
"This is an unfortunate accident. It's a very small boat and typically small jon boats like this they're very apt to tip over if you're not real careful. Like I said, we don't know how the boat tipped over. We're not sure how the individuals got in the water, but unfortunately, they did and one of them lost his life today," said Frazier.
 
The identity of the man has not been released pending the notification of next to kin. Seguin Fire/EMS, the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department and the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office were all on hand assisting in the accident.
