Local Tugboat Deckhand Drowns

Officials from the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission say commercial fishermen found the body of 48-year-old Lars Netterstrom in Apalachee Bay near St. Marks on Thursday.

Netterstrom was a deckhand on-board a Panama City based tug boat called the Jefferson.

He apparently fell overboard in Wakulla County around 8 a.m. Thursday. He was not wearing a life jacket.

No foul play is indicated in the on-going investigation.
