LAKEVIEW, Ohio — Authorities have identified a man who died after a boat carrying nine people sank in a western Ohio lake.

A coroner says the victim was 22-year-old Joshua Keith of Bellefontaine.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says no one on the boat was wearing a life jacket when it began sinking on Indian Lake just around midnight Sunday.

State watercraft officers say crews from area fire departments were able to pull the eight people from the water. The victim's body was recovered after about a two-hour search.
