The Clark County Sheriff’s Department says 49-year-old Christopher Kayl of Worthing was the man killed in a boating accident last Thursday morning on Indian Springs Lake.

The accident happened about 10 a.m. during a storm that produced heavy rain and hail with low visibility.

Kayl was thrown from the boat he was in after it was T-boned by another watercraft. There were three men onboard each boat. Two others sustained non-life threatening injuries and were transferred to Prairie Lakes Hospital in Watertown.

No other details have been released by the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Department.

Indian Springs lake is located southeast of Clark.
