Body of man recovered from lake in southwest Ohio


BATAVIA — The body of a fisherman whose boat overturned in an Ohio lake has been recovered.

The Clermont County Coroner's Office says the body of 52-year-old Daniel Snell, of Williamsburg, was pulled from Harsha Lake in southwestern Ohio on Tuesday. Authorities say the cause of death is believed to be drowning.

Ohio's Department of Natural Resources said Snell was on the lake in East Fork State Park on Sunday when he offered to transport a hunter who had killed a deer. The state agency says the boat carrying the men and the deer overturned. The hunter made it to shore.

Crews found Snell's body Tuesday afternoon after searching since Sunday.
