ODNR: Capsized boat on Mosquito Lake probably overloaded

CORTLAND

A spokesman for the Division of Watercraft says interviews with the two survivors of a Nov. 24 boating accident on Mosquito Lake that killed their friend most likely resulted from overloading.

Daniel Khalil Jr. of Howland, Vito Amiano of Hubbard and Lou Lattin of Lake Milton had 8 dozen duck decoys, 2 dozen geese decoys, shotguns and other equipment in a 16-foot aluminum boat.

“That’s a lot of equipment in a 16-foot boat. It suggests it was overloaded,” said John Wisse, spokesman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Watercraft, which is investigating the accident.

Khalil, 40, of Blue Winged Drive in Howland, died in the accident. The two other men were rescued by the Mecca Township Fire Department after holding onto flotation devices for about an hour.
