Columbia City man dies in hunting accident
An autopsy will be conducted to determine what caused the death Sunday
night of a 41-year-old Columbia City man who had been hunting waterfowl with
two other hunters.
The three hunters fell out of a 19-foot canoe on the southeast end of
Goose Lake in Whitely County about 6:15 p.m. Sunday.
The three swam about 40 yards to shore, but one man, Jay Bohde, began
struggling while swimming and lost consciousness, according to Indiana
Conservation Officer Rodney Clear’s news release.
Bohde was taken to shore via another watercraft and then transported to
Parkview Whitley Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 8:30 p.m.
