MCINTOSH COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – Officials say a Norman man has died following a boating accident at Lake Eufaula.
Around 6 p.m. on July 2, emergency crews were called to an accident at Lake Eufaula.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 23-year-old Braxton Byrd was surfing behind a 2018 Moomba when he fell into the lake.

Officials say the operator then put the boat in reverse.
As a result, Byrd was hit by the boat’s propeller.
Byrd was pronounced dead at the scene.
