2 dead, 2 missing in Lake Erie boating tragedy
The sorrow has been especially deep at the marina in the Locust Point area of western Ottawa County, where the group was believed to have launched a 21-foot fishing boat they took out onto Lake Erie. It was there that as many as 30 friends and family members gathered Thursday, waiting and praying for a miracle, choosing to keep to themselves on the western side of Turtle Creek as authorities kept reporters confined to the eastern side of it.
