Man drowns after falling from dock in Anderson

ANDERSON, SC (AP) -

Investigators say a 45-year-old Simpsonville man has drowned after falling off a dock at an Anderson marina.

Authorities say Robert Batson was at the marina Saturday night after watching the Clemson game and spending some time on Lake Hartwell.

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown says Batson's brother called for help after Batson fell into the water and didn't resurface.

McCown says alcohol likely contributed to the death, but an autopsy has been scheduled.
