SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say a young male has drowned in Lake Madison in eastern South Dakota.

Lake County Emergency Manager Doug Huntrods tells the Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/29kXJMe ) that it happened at about 7 p.m. Sunday after the victim fell off the back of a boat.

Dive teams recovered the body at about 8:30 p.m. Huntrods did not have an age for the male.

Lake Madison is about 40 miles northwest of Sioux Falls.

It’s the second drowning at the lake in a year. Last July, a 25-year-old woman drowned after falling out of a boat.
