SALEM, SC (AP/FOX Carolina) -
Oconee County rescuers have found the body of a boater who disappeared after his kayak capsized on Lake Jocassee.
Oconee County Fire Chief Charles King said rescuers found the man's body Sunday morning.
King said a husband and wife were together when their small kayak capsized Saturday. Although both wore life jackets, the husband was unable to swim. The two lost contact about 10 minutes after they were thrown into the water.
King said it took the woman an hour to swim to shore and several hours more to flag down other boaters for help.
Pickens County Coroner Kandy Kelley identified the drowning victim as Clemson University student Anlin Wang, 25. She said his body was found at 9:10 a.m. Sunday and he was wearing a life vest.
Officials with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources are investigating the drowning.
