The body of a man who fell in Lake Erie Saturday night has been recovered. The U.S. Coast Guard, Huron police and firefighters spent about 23 hours searching for the 19-year-old man. Police have identified the man as Henry Stout of Reynoldsburg. He reportedly fell off the Huron Pier around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and hadn't been seen since. Crews started searching immediately, but said the lake conditions were so rough and dangerous that the search had to be called off until the water calmed Sunday afternoon. Divers recovered Stout's body around 4:55 p.m. Sunday, which was in 20 feet of water. Witnesses told search crews exactly where Stout fell into the water. That helped dive teams pinpoint an area to search.
