State troopers say that a 49-year-old man from the state of Washington was killed, yesterday afternoon, in a boating-related accident. According to the troopers investigating the accident, David J. Tyrrell was standing near a slope where a drift boat was being removed from the Kasilof River. A long rope tied to a truck was being used. Troopers say that the rope broke, flew up and then struck Tyrrell in the upper right chest. He died as a result of trauma to the chest, before he could be flown from the scene to a hospital.
