Body of missing teenage boy recovered from southwest Minnesota lake

Search crews on Wednesday recovered the body of a missing 15-year-old boy who jumped into a southwest Minnesota lake two days earlier after losing a canoe paddle.

The searchers located the body around 11:30 a.m. in Eagle Lake, the Cottonwood County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday in a news release.

The boy had been canoeing with a family member about 10 miles northeast of Windom on Eagle Lake early Monday evening when he jumped in to retrieve his paddle, the Sheriff's Office said. He attempted to swim back to the canoe, but wind pushed it farther away from him, according to the release.
