Authorities have recovered the bodies of two friends who apparently drowned while fishing in a lake in southwestern Michigan.
The bodies were found Thursday, a day after the pair disappeared while in a boat at Bankson Lake in Van Buren County, southwest of Kalamazoo.
The sheriff’s office identified them as 20-year-old Calvin Chao, a student at Western Michigan University, and 17-year-old Chhay Wong. He was a student at Loy Norrix High School in Kalamazoo.
Identification, fishing equipment and life jackets were found in the inflatable boat. A seat from the boat was found in the water.
Sgt. Dennis Harvey of the sheriff’s office says a man mowing grass near a boat landing reported that someone had gone overboard. (AP)
