FAIR PLAY, S.C. (AP) - The body of a North Carolina man has been found floating in a lake in South Carolina.
Multiple media outlets reported the body of 75-year-old James Edward Baine of Hendersonville, N.C., was found in Lake Hartwell about 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis says Baine's body was found in less than two feet of water only about five feet from shore.
Addis says it appears Baine drove a golf cart to the lake where there is a ramp and a dock. Addis says there's about a three-foot drop into the water and Baine might have stumbled into the lake Monday night.
Baine had been staying in a house on the lake. His wife was at their home in Hendersonville.
Addis says there's no indication of foul play. An autopsy is planned Wednesday in Anderson.
