FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say a 72-year-old man fishing with another man accidentally drowned when their boat capsized on a lake in Otter Tail County.

The sheriff’s office says the two men were fishing Wednesday afternoon on Long Lake. One of the men bent over to put a fish in the basket and the 12-foot boat capsized.

KBRF-AM (http://bit.ly/1ffR6Es ) reports one man was able to make it to shore but had to walk a mile to the vehicle to call for help.

Authorities recovered the body of the other man, Robert Schachtschneider of Longville.
