An Osceola man has drowned after falling from a boat on the Osage River. The State Water Patrol says Lance Kottwitz, 34, made a high-speed turn and was thrown out of the boat. The Patrol says the circling boat hit him two or three times. He sank as he was trying to swim to the shore. This is the fourth drowning in Missouri this year.
(This is corrected from an earlier post that mis-stated the drowning occurred on Truman Lake.)
