So sorry you are connected to this. Please give the family our best from the OSO crowd. From what the news is saying, it is a very bad report. Thankfully, noone else was severly injured or killed. I am surprised we do not know him.

God Speed to the family..

Allan

Default From the Enquire

From the Cincinati Enquire and Post

Cincinnati Enquire

Body found in river following boat crash

AURORA, Ind. - The body of a 39-year-old Petersburg, Ky., man missing since a Sunday boat crash was recovered Tuesday afternoon from the Ohio River.

A volunteer boater spotted the body of Graham Cottingham about 3:30 p.m. about three-quarters of a mile downstream from where the crash occurred, said Sgt. Bill Baumbauer, an Indiana Conservation officer. The body was about 100 feet from shore, he said.

Cottingham was one of five people on board the boat that capsized near Lesko Park.

The other four, including a 10-year-old boy, were rescued from the water shortly after the crash.

The boat apparently struck a wake, Baumbauer said.

Crash victim found
The body of a Northern Kentucky man killed in a high-speed boat accident Sunday in the Ohio River was recovered Tuesday afternoon.

Volunteer searchers spotted the body of Graham Codrington, 39, of Petersburg, floating in the river about three-quarters of a mile downstream from where the accident happened near Aurora, Ind.

Codrington was driving a 22-foot boat that hit rough water and crashed Sunday afternoon. Four passengers in the boat suffered injuries and are recovering.
