A man died at a popular lake destination in the nearby DeKalb County area.

Reports from partner station WJLE indicate the Cookeville man died last week after an Independence Day accident on Center Hill Lake.

57 year old Kenneth Farron Young was in the Mine Lick Creek area of the lake in the Austin Bottom Community when the incident occurred just off shore at the end of a road in an area used by boaters to access the lake.

According to Joe Johnson of the Smithville-DeKalb County Rescue Squad, a boater witnessed the man go under the water and then float back up. The victim could not be revived at the scene.

Meanwhile, six people were injured in a boating accident last Wednesday on Center Hill Lake. TWRA officers said two boats collided just northeast of Davies Island. Those injured were transported by TWRA boats to the Johnson's Chapel Recreation Area where ambulances were waiting to take them to the hospital.

No one in the collision were believed to have been seriously hurt.
