From Local Sources
WEST BOGGS LAKE — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is investigating the death of a Harrison County man at West Boggs Lake in Daviess County.
Herbert Stickler, 79, of Ramsey was fishing with a family member around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday when his fishing lure got snagged on a log. While attempting to free his line, Stickler fell in the water. His fishing partner attempted to resuce him but was unsuccessful.
An autopsy performed today determined the cause of death to be related to a medical condition, not a drowning.
The depth of the water where the accident occurred was 3 to 4 feet. Stickler was not wearing a life jacket.
Responding agencies include the Daviess County Sheriff's Department, Indiana State Police, West Boggs Park rangers, Daviess County Coroner's Office and Southwest Medical EMS.
Indiana conservation officers strongly encourage people wear a life jacket while boating or near water.
