Columbia man drowns in Lake of the Ozarks boating accident

A Columbia man drowned at the Lake of the Ozarks late Friday night while he was trying to help someone who fell overboard from a boat.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a passenger onboard a 2009 Landau Pontoon Boat was riding on the bow of the boat and fell in.

Twenty-five-year-old Adam Pedego and two others jumped in to help the friend who fell.

When the passenger was rescued, Pedego never resurfaced. His body was discovered Satuday.
