Man Drowns At Truman Lake

HENRY COUNTY, Mo. (KMOX) –  A man is dead after falling into Truman Lake Monday afternoon.

72-year-old Archie Murphy of Lee’s Summit Missouri and another man were on the lake on a bass boat when the wind kicked up and water began coming over the bow, tossing both men in the water.

Murphy’s body was recovered a short time later — the other man escaped with minor injuries.

Officials say neither man was wearing a life jacket.
