A man drowned after he and a friend inadvertently blew a hole in the bottom of their rowboat with a large firecracker.
Daniel Wyman, 29, and a friend had tossed an M-250 firecracker into a lake to kill fish Sunday, Chief Deputy Coroner Jim Wipper said Tuesday.
A gust of wind pushed their 14-foot aluminum boat over the firecracker, and the boat sank about 100 yards from shore.
The friend swam to safety.
An M-250 is equivalent to a quarter stick of dynamite.
