TUSCUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a 75-year-old Kansas City man drowned after he fell into the Osage River in central Missouri.

The patrol says Larry J. Pennington lost his balance Wednesday evening when he was moving gear around in his boat and fell overboard near the Osage River Bridge in Miller County.

His boat was docked at the time and he was not wearing a life vest.

Pennington was pulled from the water and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
