At about 9:30 a.m. this morning Beaufort County Communications received a call reporting an overturned boat and a person in the water on a private pond east of Belhaven on US Hwy 264. Deputies and EMS Personnel were dispatched to find a 57 year old male victim had been pulled from the water, but was unresponsive.

Deputies learned that 2 men from Scranton NC, in Hyde County had been fishing on the pond in a small boat when the boat overturned. The victim Darrell Alvin Layne had to be pulled ashore by his 67 year old fishing partner and efforts by the partner and EMS were unsuccessful in saving his life. The accident is still under investigation. At this time there is no indication of foul play.
