A Warrick County man is dead following a canoe accident in Harrison County. It's the second death in the Blue River this week.
Indiana conservation officers say 69-year-old William Chappell of Boonville was canoeing with his wife Wednesday when they struck a log and flipped over.
Chappell became pinned underneath the canoe. His grandson, who was nearby in a kayak, pulled him out and started CPR.
Chappell was airlifted to a University of Louisville hospital where he died. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
On Tuesday, a 16 year old girl drowned while swimming near a dam in that same area.
