BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (September 19, 2015)–Conservation officers are investigating an accident on Lake Monroe Saturday that claimed the life of a 30-year-old Indianapolis man.

Investigators say Scott Robinson was boarding a pontoon boat from the water, when for some unknown reason, fell back into the water and did not surface.

Monroe County Dive Team members used sonar and divers to locate Robinson around 7:00 p.m. and transported him to IU Health Bloomington Hospital.

Conservation officers say it is unclear if a pre-existing medical condition may have been a factor.

The exact cause of death will not be determined until an autopsy is performed.
