CONNEAUT — A 58-year-old Girard man is dead after falling off a boat on Saturday, seven miles off the Lake Erie shore near the Pennsylvania state line, according to reports.

Conneaut Assistant fire Chief Steve Sanford told the Ashtabula Star Beacon that Michael Daroski was pronounced dead at UH Conneaut Medical Center after attempts to save his life were not successful.
