Kalispell man dies at Foys Lake
KALISPELL, Mont. -

A Kalispell man died after his boat capsized at Foys Lake over the weekend and officials are still investigating whether he drowned or suffered a medical problem.
   
Flathead County officials say 49-year-old Lance Joseph Deglow was in a 12-foot aluminum boat with his wife, their two children and a dog on Sunday when the boat capsized in the lake west of Kalispell.
   
Deglow's wife told officials they were 40 or 50 feet from shore when the boat capsized. She says Deglow was helping her swim to shore, but became unresponsive about 25 feet from shore.
   
She brought him to shore, but resuscitation efforts failed.
   
An autopsy is planned.
