OSCEOLA, Mo. (AP) — A 58-year-old Osceola man is dead after falling out of a boat and drowning in the Osage River.
The Missouri Water Patrol says Richard Harrington died in the accident Wednesday in St. Clair County.
The patrol says Harrington and another person were checking trout lines when he stood up and the boat capsized.
