Man Drowns in Kanawha River

One man drowned Thursday night after an accident in Marmet.

Detectives say three people were in a boat on the river behind the Rite Aid. One of the boaters decided to jump off to take a dip in the river -- but ended up drowning.

Marmet Police haven't released his name.

They do say that the people on the boat were drinking shortly before the accident.
