Coroner: NC man drowned in SC lake

May 20, 2010 8:45:00 AM - thestate.com
A coroner says an autopsy shows a North Carolina man found floating in a lake in South Carolina drowned.

Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis said Wednesday afternoon the death of 75-year-old James Edward Baine of Hendersonville, N.C., was an accident. Addis says there were no other injuries that could have caused the death.

Baine's body was found in Lake Hartwell about 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Addis says Baine's body was found in less than two feet of water only about five feet from shore. He says it appears Baine drove a golf cart to the lake where there is a ramp and a dock. Addis says there's about a three-foot drop into the water and Baine might have stumbled into the lake Monday night.

Baine had been staying in a house on the lake.
