Boater's body recovered from Yellow Creek State Park

By Melanie Gillespie


Rescue crews recovered the body of a boater who dove into the water at Yellow Creek State Park and never resurfaced.

The Indiana County Coroner's Office said Benjamin Hill, 55, of Penn Run launched his boat before it drifted away from the dock. His uncle told investigators -- Hill disappeared after trying to retrieve it just before 9 a.m. Saturday.

Crews recovered his body about 50 feet from the dock just after 10:30 a.m. An autopsy was scheduled for Sunday.
