Strong winds and high waves capsize a boat at Cheney Lake, claiming the life of a Hutchinson man.

Park rangers say the drowning victim was boating and fishing with his son.

The son came ashore to move the trailer into position to load the boat when the boat capsized less than fifty yards from the dock.

Park rangers say the boat was overcome by the waves because of the winds and the size of the boat.

The victim's name hasn't been released.
