An Ohio man died early Monday after being hurt in a swimming accident in a northern Indiana lake Saturday evening.

Indiana Conservation officers are investigating the accident that killed Bradley Heyne, 26, of Coldwater, Ohio. About 6 p.m., Heyne was swimming with friends at the Big Chapman Lake sandbar when he dove head-first off a boat, striking his head on the shallow sandbar. (Authorities on Sunday incorrectly reported that the accident happened at Lake Wawasee.)

Other boaters quickly pulled the unresponsive Heyne to shore and began CPR, but he was listed in critical condition as soon as he arrived at a hospital Saturday night, Conservation officers reported. He died at 7 a.m. Monday.
