STOUGHTON (WKOW) -- A 66-year-old man died Thursday night after his sailboat tipped over during a race on Lake Kegonsa.
Authorities were called around 7:15 p.m. to a boat landing on Quam Drive on the south side of the lake.
The Dane County Sheriff's Department says the man's boat capsized and he was thrown into the water. The man was wearing a life jacket and was okay. But when he tried to climb into a rescue boat, authorities say the man had some sort of a medical event, possibly a heart attack, and fell back into the water.
The 66-year-old was pulled out and rushed to Stoughton Hospital, where he later died.
The man's name has not been released, but authorities say he was from Minnesota and had a summer home on the lake.
