AMARILLO, Texas - A father and son from Amarillo died in a lake
accident during a hunting trip in the Texas Panhandle.
Donley County Sheriff Butch Blackburn says 17-year-old Hotan Ahnood
used a kayak to go onto Greenbelt Lake to retrieve a bird, then the
small vessel capsized.
The youth's father, 46-year-old Bashir Ahnood, went into the water to
try to save his son.
The accident happened Saturday, a day when temperatures were below
freezing. The bodies were recovered Sunday.
Greenbelt Lake is about 50 miles southeast of Amarillo.
