Kansas man drowns in Lake Taneycomo

BRANSON, Missouri (AP) — A man from Kansas drowned while fishing at Lake Taneycomo in southwest Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 66-year-old Robert Rossman of Princeton, Kan., died Wednesday after he fell out of his boat.

The patrol says Rossman apparently slipped before falling into the water. His son and a bystander pulled him from the water and performed CPR but he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy is planned.
