SC man drowns while fishing

Aug 6, 2010 7:52:00 AM - thestate.com
A man has drowned while trying to untangle a fishing net from a dock near the South Carolina coast.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that 54-year-old Norris White of Charleston drowned Wednesday night at the James Island County Park fishing dock.

Charleston County Deputy Coroner Bobbi Jo O'Neal says an autopsy Thursday confirmed that White drowned.

Witnesses told investigators several park guests offered to help him retrieve the casting net but he became upset and climbed into the water to free it himself. He lost his footing and slipped beneath the surface.

His body was found near the dock about an hour later.
