PORTER, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a man is dead after he fell off his Jet Ski in Lake Ontario.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call at about 7 p.m. Saturday in the town of Porter, New York.

The sheriff’s office says the victim and his grandson were riding on a Jet Ski about 150 yards from shore when the man fell off.

They say the grandson ran to get help and bystanders swam out to retrieve the man.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name was not released.



The death is under investigation.
