Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating after two men died while fishing on a private pond in McCurtain County. Troopers are calling the incident an apparent drowning but the Tulsa medical examiner's office will determine the official cause of death.

Troopers say 87-year-old Leslie Williams and 64-year-old Glen Williams, both of Broken Bow, were fishing on a pond northeast of town Tuesday. Leslie Williams fell overboard when his boat, a 12-foot Jon boat, capsized, the investigating trooper said. 

For "undetermined reasons," Glen Williams' Chevrolet pickup entered the same pond and was found in about 7 feet of water. His body was recovered from the truck, the report states.
