EUSTIS, Maine (AP) - Officials say an 81-year-old man has drowned in Flagstaff Lake in western Maine.
Maine Warden Service Cpl. John MacDonald says Leo Pepin of Eustis was training his dogs on the lake shore around 3 p.m. Wednesday when he entered the water to retrieve a piece of dog training equipment.
MacDonald said Pepin went under the water and failed to surface.
His body was later recovered in 10 to 15 feet of water by Eustis firefighters and a game warden.
