Fisherman Slips Into Water, Drowns

PIKE COUNTY, Mo. –  A man fishing in northeast Missouri slipped into the water and drowned Monday.

State Water Patrol officials say 70-year-old Richard Ochs of Clarksville fell into the water from a steep bank and was unable to regain his footing.

The report did not identify the body of water, other than to say it was in Pike County.

Divers recovered the victim’s body about a half-hour after he fell in.
