A 28-year old man drowns after falling off boat in Percy Priest Lake. 

The body of a 28-year old man has been recovered after he fell off a pontoon boat ladder Sunday afternoon on Percy Priest Lake in Antioch. Authorities identified the victim as David Malone. Malone fell into the water before 3:40 p.m. near the Four Corners Marine, off Lavergne Couchville Pike in Antioch.

According to police, Malone was not a strong swimmer and was using a floatation device in the water. Apparently, he handed the device off to someone else when he decided to attempt to climb back in the boat. He slipped on the boat’s ladder, went under and was able to resurface. 

Friends attempted to save Malone but were unable to find him after he went under the water surface. 

Police stated that alcohol was not a factor in the accident. Police also noted that Malone was not wearing a life vest. This is the second drowning at this location within a month’s time.
