Drowned In Lake Gatun After Boating Accident

Safety & SecuritySinaproc personnel Wednesday morning recovered the body of Jose Quiroz, 48, who had been missing since Monday morning on Gatun Lake, in the area of Arosemena, in La Chorrera. Jose fell into the lake when his boat crashed and overturned. Family and friends described him as very friendly and hardworking. (Siglo)

Editor's Comment: Lake Gatun is full of submerged stumps, and I imagine this guy might have hit a stump and flipped his boat. Most of the local Panamanians never wear any kind of life preserver or flotation device when they are out on the water. He probably hit is head or something when the boat flipped, and that was it. Shame...
