Man drowns after boat overturns
A man drowned when a boat overturned on a private lake in Lansing, a fire department official said.
The accident was reported at 11:51 a.m. Sunday on Industrial Street, said Michael Stackhouse, chief of Leavenworth County Fire District No. 1.
Stackhouse said the man had been in a small canoe with another person when the boat overturned.
"One person made it to the shore," Stackhouse. "The other did not."
A dog that was in the boat also made it to safety.
Stackhouse said Fire District No. 1 received assistance from other agencies including a dive team from Overland Park.
The man's body was recovered.
