Man Drowns After Boat Capsizes in Otter Tail County

Posted: Updated:
The Otter Tail County Sheriff's office says one man has died after a boat capsized on Wednesday afternoon.  Just after 1:00 p.m., The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office responded to a capsized boat on Long Lake and a report that one man had drowned.

The investigation found that the boat capsized while two men were fishing and they both ended up in the water.  Only one man made it back to shore alive.  The Sheriff's Office has identified the man who died as 72-year-old Robert Schachtschneider of Longville, Minnesota.

No foul play is suspected and the drowning appears to be accidental. The accident happened on Long Lake east of Maplewood State Park.
