CAMBRIDGE, Minn. - A 32-year-old man is dead after tumbling out of a boat in Isanti County early Sunday.

Isanti County Chief Deputy Chris Caulk says the victim, Dylan James Dusbabek of Isanti, fell overboard while boating on Long Lake shortly after 3 a.m. A friend of his who was also in the boat called 911, and first responders and divers from Isanti County began searching for Dusbabek.

After a number of hours the rescue mission officially turned into one of recovery.

A dive team from Isanti County was on the scene about 3:30 a.m. Anoka County arrived on the scene around 9 a.m. to assist and with the use of sonar soon recovered Dusbabek's body in eight feet of water.

Passengers on the boat were questioned by investigators, and the boat was impounded. At this point authorities aren't saying whether alcohol or drugs were involved in the mishap.

Chief Deputy Caulk says it does not appear the victim or those in the boat with him were wearing life jackets.
