Authorities say the boat Byrd was on, a pontoon boat, was anchored with numerous other boats in Anderson Cove when the accident happened.

The incident occurred just after 4:30 p.m.

Missouri Highway Patrol troopers from the Missouri Water Patrol as well as members of the Osage Beach Fire Department were involved in the rescue, and ultimately, recovery operation.
