EASTLAKE--One boater has died according the Lake County Coroner's office, after his boat capsized Saturday afternoon.
He was in the boat with another man who was rescued near Waverly Road and Lake Shore Boulevard.
"All our prayers are going out to the families," said Toby Egan, who witnessed the water rescue.
The two men were taken to Lake Health hospital; firefighters and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources are investigating the incident.
Eastlake Fire Chief, Ted Whittington, tells Fox 8 neighbors could hear the men yelling for help just before 1:30PM.
"Some of the neighbors here actually heard people yelling for help, they found a
gentleman calling for help the boat was capsized."
Chief Whittington says the victim who passed away Saturday evening was in 'grave condition' when dive teams pulled him out.
It's also unclear if the men in the boat were wearing life vests.
