CORNWALL, Conn. (AP) - Officials say a New Milford man has died after a canoe capsized in a Connecticut river.

Crews were dispatched to Housatonic River in Cornwall Sunday for what was initially a missing person report.

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said the search turned into a boating accident investigation when officials learned that a canoe capsized with three people on board.

Two people made it to safety and the body of Antonavas (An-TOH-neh-vass) Morris was later found. He was 47.

It is not yet known what caused the canoe to capsize.
