SMITH, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say a 41 year old Eastern Kentucky woman drowned after falling off of a personal inflatable device in Martin's Fork Lake.
Troopers say the body of Donna Creech, of Cumberland, was pulled
from the lake in Harlan County, about an hour after she was seen falling off the flotation device in less than 15 feet of water.
Troopers say the drowning is under investigation, but no foul play is suspected.
