PRESQUE ISLE — A 19-year-old Presque Isle man has died after the canoe he was in capsized.

The Maine Warden Service says the body of Jacob Caldwell was recovered from Echo Lake late Sunday morning.

Lt. Thomas Ward says Presque Isle police received calls of an overturned canoe in the lake at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

Two 25-year-old men from Presque Isle who were in the canoe swam to shore and are OK.

The Warden Service is reminding boaters to dress appropriately because even though temperatures are rising, some bodies of water remain cold.

The death remains under investigation.
