A boating accident yesterday morning in Stark County’s Jackson Township claimed the life of a 73-year old man.  Authorities say John Cowgill was fishing with a friend on a private pond when their boat capsized as Cowgill was attempting to reel in a catch.  Cowgill’s friend was able to swim safely to shore and call 9-1-1, but it was more than ten minutes before first responders were able to pull Cowgill from the water.  He was pronounced dead after being taken to a nearby hospital.
