FORSYTHE, MO (KWWL) -- An 84-year-old eastern Iowa man is dead after he fell from a boat at a Missouri lake.  Authorities say Robert Bastron of Bettendorf died after falling from a small utility boat that struck a wake on Lake Taneycomo.  They say the boat's driver lost control, throwing Bastron from the boat.  His shirt then got entangled in the boat's propellor, preventing him from surfacing.
