Texas game wardens Tuesday morning recovered the body of a man who was killed in a boat accident in the Lavaca River the night before.

About 8 a.m., a 37-year-old Ganado man was found submerged in the river, said Game Warden Chelsea Bailey, spokeswoman for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

That man was operating a boat in the Lavaca River near Farm-to-Market Road 616 in Jackson County when he and a passenger were ejected Monday night, Bailey said.
