A man is dead after an accident on a lake in Douglas County.

The sheriff's office was called to Lake Le Homme Dieu just after 9 am.

A witness says a man was "lake testing" a new boat and returning to shore when it appeared he fell out of the boat.

Rescue crews found the body of 29–year–old Brandon Randt of Alexandria after more than four hours of searching.

He was found in 24 feet of water.

An autopsy is forthcoming.
