SPENCER CO. – Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a boating accident that occurred Sunday and resulted in the death of a Warrick County man. 

The accident occurred south of County Road 1060 North on Little Pigeon Creek which borders Spencer and Warrick counties.

At approximately 4:00 p.m. CT, 25-year-old Brandon T. Malone, of Bullocktown, and a friend were kayaking when they came upon a logjam that completely blocked travel downstream.   Before being able to get to the shore, Malone tipped his kayak and went under water.

Efforts were made by the other kayaker to rescue Malone.
