FORT MILL, S.C. (AP) — Authorities have recovered the body of a second fisherman from a Fort Mill lake.

A spokesman for the state Department of Natural Resources says the missing man’s body was recovered Saturday morning from Lake Haigler.

The York County coroner has not yet released the man’s name. But The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/14Ab86Q ) that family members identified him as 62-year-old John Wilson of Rock Hill.

Searchers found the body of 67-year-old Joseph Jeter on Friday.

The two men went fishing together on the lake Thursday afternoon. The agency continues to investigate how their boat overturned. But its spokesman, Capt. Robert McCullough, says it appears to be accidental.

Someone walking near the lake called 911 about 7:30 p.m. Thursday after realizing the boat was in trouble.
