Man’s Body Recovered After Boat Mishap In Henry County

The body of a 61-year-old man who fell from a boat while fishing has been pulled from a reservoir in Henry County. Authorities say they located Jeff Maxwell’s body shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday. Maxwell, of Anderson, and a passenger were on his small pontoon boat earlier Sunday on Westwood Park Reservoir, southwest of New Castle. The passenger told authorities that Maxwell was operating the trolling motor and leaned over the side, causing the boat to tip.
