Authorities Identify Cedar River Drowning Victim
Authorities have released the name of the fisherman who died after falling from his boat on the Cedar River in Charles City Tuesday evening (March 22, 2016).
Officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) identified the victim as Kevin Neal Endelman, 54, of Charles City.
The DNR said Endelman had his small boat anchored just above a low-head dam on the river when he apparently fell out and went over the dam shortly after 7 p.m.
Endelman was pulled from the Cedar downstream of the dam by the Charles City Fire and Rescue and was taken to Floyd County Medical Center in Charles City, where he was pronounced dead. Also assisting at the scene were Charles City police and Floyd County sheriff’s deputies.
The incident remains under investigation by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
