CAMPTI, La. (AP) - Natchitoches Parish deputies say an elderly Campti man died in a boating accident on Black Lake.

Deputies say 94-year-old C.D. Baker's body was found by another boater just after officials had received a 911 call Friday about an empty boat and debris in the water near the Sandy Point boat launch.  

Authorities say Baker was not wearing a life vest. The body was released to the Natchitoches Parish Coroner's Office to determine the exact cause of death.
