HAINES (AP) -- A man from Texas died after a boating accident in Chilkat Lake, northwest of Haines, Alaska State Troopers said Tuesday.
Jackson Brooks, 63, of Del Rio, Texas, was boating with two friends Monday when they lost control of their skiff and were thrown into the water.
Brooks' companions were able to get back in the boat, but Brooks drowned.
The three were old Army buddies who were staying at a lodge on the lake, investigators said.
