NORTH EAST, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a Westminster man died in a boating accident on the Elk River near North East.

Maryland Natural Resources Police say a boat with four people on board took on water and capsized near the Chesapeake Isles Community Saturday afternoon. Witnesses pulled the operator and three passengers from the water, and the operator was unconscious.

The 45-year-old man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say the three passengers were unhurt. The victim’s name is being withheld until his relatives are notified.
