2nd Water-Related Death on Blue River

For the second time this week, there's been a water related death in the Blue River in Harrison County.

Indiana Conservation Officers say 69-year-old William Chappell of Boonville was canoeing on the Blue River Wednesday morning when his canoe hit a log and capsized.

Chappell was pinned underneath the canoe.

His grandson, who was nearby, freed Chappell and started CPR until medical personnel arrived.

The D-N-R says Chappell later died from complications at University of Louisville Hospital.
It was the second water-related death on the Blue River since Tuesday.

16-year-old Alissa Knight of Harrison County drowned while swimming in the river Tuesday evening.
