Boater killed in inlet accident
An Ellicott City man was killed yesterday in an early morning boating accident.
Authorities said the body of Michael Schott, 33, was recovered about an hour and a half after the boat he was riding hit a channel marker.
Sgt. Ken Turner of the Maryland Natural Resources Police said the accident happened about 12:50 a.m. in the Pleasure Island Cut, a small inlet near where the Back River meets the Chesapeake Bay.
Sgt. Turner said the driver of the boat, William Spittel, 51, ended up in the water along with Mr. Schott and another passenger, Jason Bard, 34. Mr. Spittel and Mr. Bard were rescued, and Mr. Spittel was hospitalized with a concussion.
The cause of the accident is under investigation.
Sgt. Turner said Baltimore County Fire Department divers found Mr. Schott’s about 2:20 a.m. in water 8 to 12 feet deep.
