DRESBACH, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have recovered the body of a Wisconsin man who was missing after a tugboat went over the Dresbach dam in eastern Minnesota.
Officials say the 22-year-old man never left the boat. He was recovered inside the three-level tugboat, wearing his life jacket. Two other Wisconsin men survived with minor injuries.
The La Crosse Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/17KiJ5S ) that Winona County authorities say the boat lost power right before it capsized and went through the roller gates at Lock and Dam No. 7 early Wednesday.
The dam is the same place where 11 people were rescued after a rented houseboat was swept over the roller gates and capsized May 27. In 2007, four drowned at the dam when their boat was sucked back into it.
The Coast Guard will launch a formal investigation.
