drowning

A Kenai man drowned in Cook Inlet after falling overboard from a commercial fishing boat on Thursday morning. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, 62 year-old Anthony Walsh spent between 10-30 minutes in water north of Kodiak while the other fisherman on the boat attempted to get him aboard.

Kevin Loran of Anchorage did not immediately hear Walsh go overboard, said Alaska State Trooper spokesperson Megan Peters. She says Walsh was not wearing a life jacket.
