N.C. Man Dies In S.C. Boat Accident

Posted on Aug 23, 2010
   A N.C. man was killed Saturday when the boat rope pulling the inner tube he was riding apparently got tangled around his neck.

   Brandon Godfrey, 21, of Hope Mills, N.C. was found floating face down on Lake Jocassee on Salem, S.C. after the rope to his inner tube broke, Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis explained.

   Godfrey was tubing with another man and died in the hospital about an hour after he was found unconscious. He suffered a large cut to his neck and it appears he got tangled in the rope, Addis noted.

   An autopsy will be done today.
