Officials identify man killed in fishing boat accident

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Deputies from the Lubbock County Sheriff's office say they have recovered the body of 73-year-old Wayne Teal from a fishing pond where a small boat overturned on Monday afternoon.

The pond is on private property near the intersection of FM 1729 and N. Frankford. We're told Teal farmed land in the area and had built the pond on his property. 

Deputies say a relative called 911 around 2 p.m. on Monday afternoon. When authorities arrived, they found Teal's small fishing boat overturned. 

Numerous units responded and LSO's mobile command unit was set up. LSO's dive team finally located Teal's body around 5:45 p.m. 

Investigators aren't exactly sure what led up to the boat capsizing, but they believe a medical issue could have been a factor. LSO says foul play has been ruled out at this time.

The medical examiner has determined that the preliminary cause of death was accidental drowning.

Teal leaves behind a wife and three children.
