BRANSON, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a 56-year-old St. Louis man died in a boating accident on Lake Taneycomo near Branson.

The patrol says Gary Bernhardt was in a boat that drifted and hit a tree limb and overturned Tuesday afternoon about a quarter-mile mile east of the lake’s dam.

Two other men on the boat were able to hold on to the boat and tree limb until they were rescued.

Bernhardt was taken to Cox Hospital in Branson where he was pronounced dead Tuesday evening.
