Missing boater's body recovered at Lewisville Lake

Posted: Updated:
The body of a missing boater was recovered from Lewisville Lake Sunday morning.

31 year old Blake Long drowned Friday night after his boat sank.  Investigators say Long and a woman who was also on board who was rescued might have been drinking before the boat sank.

Texas Parks and Wildlife say a life jacket could’ve saved Long.  When his boat started taking on water, 911 was called and Long and his female friend were told to put life jackets on.  His friend complied, but for some reason, Long didn’t.

Authorities haven’t said why Long’s boat started taking on water, but say lake levels might be to blame, exposing tree stumps and sand bars that might not have been an issue in the past.
