Posted: Updated:

A 62-year-old man drowned while fishing at Little Ocmulgee State Park this weekend.    

The Wheeler County Sheriff says Fred Lamar Drury of Brantley County accidentally drowned while fishing with his wife. Law enforcers say water pressure from the dam caused the boat to overturn Saturday morning. First responders with Telfair, Wheeler, and surrounding counties assisted in the search. Drury's wife was rescued but his body was found around five Saturday evening.
