1 dead, 1 missing after boat capsizes near Ohio River dam

Smithland Lock And Dam's Dewatered Lock Chamber Is Inspected By Air.

SMITHLAND, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky officials say one man died and search crews were looking for another after a boat capsized near the Smithland Lock and Dam on the Ohio River. Authorities said the men from southern Illinois were fishing from an 18-foot Jon boat near the dam Thursday morning when their vessel overturned. A Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources spokesman said search crews later found the body of 60-year-old Kenneth Duncan of West Frankfort, Illinois. He said crews were still searching for a 46-year-old man from Herrin, Illinois. Witnesses told authorities the boat overturned after the river began pulling the boat toward the dam.
