PITTSBURGH COUNTY -- A 23-year-old McAlester man drowned in Lake Eufaula Friday night, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Kyle Haskins was fishing from an anchored pontoon boat when he fell from the vessel for an unknown reason at about 9:45 p.m. The boat was located about 20 feet from the shore near the Arrowhead Estates boat ramp, the trooper states.
Other occupants in the boat pulled Haskins to shore and started CPR, but the 23-year-old was pronounced dead at the Lake View Hospital at Eufaula.
The report states that there was an odor of alcohol present.
