    Very sorry to hear about this.
    The PFD is certainly a good ideal.

    KSDK -- One person was safely pulled from the Mississippi River Thursday evening after the boat he and another man were riding in overturned. The second man on that boat was not so fortunate.

    The incident happened around 7 p.m. near Herculaneum. The Herculaneum Fire Department rescued one man on their side of the river.

    The Columbia, Illinois Fire Department was contacted to recover the body of the other man about one mile north of Harrisonville.

    Investigators have yet to determine why the men were on the river or how their boat overturned.

    The article I read said he had a pfd on. Kind of curious as to how that went down.
