COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - The bodies of a man and boy who fell into a western Georgia lake after a boating accident have been recovered.

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan says the bodies of 15-year-old Tyquarius Myers and 35-year-old Lloyd Cabiness have been recovered from the Lake Oliver Marina. Authorities say the man’s body was recovered Tuesday and the teen’s body was found Wednesday morning.

Columbus Fire Marshal Rickey Shores has said the man and boy fell from their boat on Sunday when a storm hit. Battalion Chief Donnie Jones told the Ledger-Enquirer of Columbus that neither was wearing a life jacket.

Alabama Law Enforcement Agency spokesman Steve Jarrett said in a statement that the organization helped the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in the recovery effort.
