Coroner: Boater killed by propeller after falling overboard

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A 77-year-old Mississippi man has died after falling out of his boat and being hit by its propeller.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2t28bje ) that William Melton died Tuesday in the Tchoutacabouffa (CHEW-tah-cah-buff) River.

Witnesses on the river bank say Melton was alone in his boat when he rounded a bend in the river and fell overboard. The boat circled him twice.
