LA: Hunting victim laid to rest

Hunting Accident Victim Laid to Rest

Posted: Nov 18, 2008 08:28 PM

The victim of a tragic accident in Saint Martin Parish is now at rest. Tuesday funeral services were held for Archie Vicknair.

Investigators say Vicknair was duck hunting with his son Saturday morning when he fell out of the boat and died. Agents with Wildlife and Fisheries say the two were in a boat in Basin Lake, near Catahoula when it happened.

Officials tell us Vicknair's young son, Ridge, jumped out of the boat to help his father, but couldn't hold his dad above the water.

That's when investigators say Ridge let go of his father and swam to shore to get help. He found help, but when the group got to the boat, they found Vicknair face down in the water. Vicknair was 36 years old.
