Man drowns when boat capsizes in Croton reservoir

CROTON FALLS – One man drowned when the rowboat he was in with a friend capsized in the Croton Falls Reservoir Tuesday afternoon.

The victim’s name was not immediately released.

Authorities said the two men were fishing when the boat flipped over. One man was able to swim to shore while the other man went under. His body was recovered about an hour later.

The cause is under investigation.

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection owns the reservoir.
