CAYCE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a man on the Congaree River.

Local media outlets report an autopsy is scheduled Sunday to determine the cause of death for 63-year-old Marvin Browne of Gaston.

The Cayce Police Department says Browne and another man were boating on the river at around noon Saturday when their 10-foot boat capsized.

Browne didn’t know how to swim. Several swimmers nearby pulled Browne to shore, but he died on the scene.

The other man was hospitalized for exhaustion. Neither man was wearing a life vest.

Police are still investigating what caused the boat to capsize.
