Man Overboard in Alexandria Lake Identified as Former Hutchinson Resident 29 Aug 16

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. (AP) — A 29-year-old man is dead after he apparently went overboard while testing a boat in an Alexandria lake.

Authorities say they got a call Saturday morning about a man overboard on Lake Le Homme Dieu. Rescuers found the body of Brandon Darryl Randt of Alexandria, formerly of Hutchinson, about four hours later. He was taken to the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

A witness told Douglas County sheriff’s officials that Randt was testing a boat and seemed to be heading to shore, but the witness then saw the boat circling and Randt was in the water.

He was not wearing a lifejacket.
