STANWOOD, Mich. (AP) -

Authorities say a boater has apparently drowned and a fisherman has died along separate stretches of the Muskegon River in western Michigan over the weekend.

The Mecosta County sheriff's department says a 47-year-old Big Rapids man was boating Sunday near Stanwood with his 21-year-old daughter when they hit a large sunken log and were thrown from the boat. The man died and his daughter was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Names weren't immediately released.

On Saturday, divers from Newaygo County pulled the body of a 34-year-old Grand Rapids man from the river at Newaygo's Riverfront Park. Police say the man was fishing and had entered the water before he was found dead. His name wasn't immediately released.
