MOORINGSPORT, La. (AP) - Caddo Parish sheriff’s deputies have recovered the body of a 69-year-old man who fell out of his boat Tuesday in Caddo Lake.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick tells The Times (https://bit.ly/1FmzU0S ) the body of Floyd Robinson of Shreveport was found around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday in water roughly six feet deep.

Deputies say Robinson and three family members were fishing when he was setting an anchor and lost his balance and fell overboard.

Deputies say one of Robinson’s relatives extended a paddle to him, but he lost his grip and went under.
