Fatal boating accident under investigation

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the Laurens County Sheriff's Office are investigating a fatal boat accident Thursday night.

Capt. Chris Bracewell of the Laurens County Sheriff's Office said one man died on Ben Hall Lake, but his name was not immediately released as Bracewell wanted to make sure family members had been notified.

A neighbor reported seeing a boat doing circles in the lake before the man's body was pulled from the water.
