CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say an Indianapolis man has died after a boat capsized while he was fishing with friends on the Ohio River.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says the Clark County Coroner’s Office pronounced 48-year-old Anthony Beck dead on a boat ramp around 3 a.m. Friday. Authorities said Beck was fishing in a small boat with another man while another friend was in a separate boat. They were downstream from the Falls of Ohio State Park.

Authorities say Beck and 43-year-old Juan Duncan of Indianapolis fell overboard when one of them stood in the boat they were in. They both were wearing life jackets. Duncan swam to shore.

Beck’s friends found him floating face down and unresponsive. The Department of Natural Resources said late Friday the boat had been recovered.
