Colorado News

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a man drowned after falling out of a small fishing boat in southern Colorado’s Lake Pueblo.

KOAA-TV reports 68-year-old Robert Charles Taylor fell into the water Monday morning, and people passing by on a pontoon boat on the west end of the lake pulled him out. Another boat took the man to a boat ramp, where a Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer and park ranger performed CPR until an ambulance arrived. Taylor died at the scene. Authorities say his death marked the fifth drowning at the lake this year.
