TRENTON, Wis. (AP) - A Trenton man has died after becoming trapped under a weed-cutting boat on a Washington County lake.

The sheriff’s office says deputies were called to Wallace Lake about noon Wednesday after a resident saw the capsized boat about 50 yards off shore. The first deputy arriving at the scene went into the water and tried to free the man, but was unsuccessful.

Dive team members, working the Newburg and West Bend fire departments, recovered the body of the 81-year-old man about 2 p.m. He was the operator of the weed cutter. He has not been identified.
