An elderly Grand Forks man died after a boating mishap on Devils Lake.

Ramsey County Sheriff Steve Nelson tells KFGO radio that the man was launching a boat Monday afternoon when the boat floated off the trailer and the wind began to push it away from shore. The man jumped into the water and attempted to swim to the boat but tired and went under the water.

A bystander got the man to shore, but he died at a Devils Lake hospital. His name wasn't immediately released.
