FAIR PLAY, S.C. (AP) - Divers have recovered the body of a Georgia man who fell out of a boat on Lake Hartwell.

Authorities say 23-year-old Logan Wolfe, of Richmond Hill, Ga., was on a fishing trip with friends Saturday afternoon when he fell out of the boat near the Interstate 85 bridge.

Divers looked for him all afternoon Saturday. Authorities say he was found around 10:30 a.m. Sunday in 55-foot deep water.

Both South Carolina and Georgia wildlife officials are investigating the death.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday by the Oconee County Coroner's Office.
