A man drowned Saturday evening at the fuel dock at Shanghai Marina on Norris Lake after falling off a boat.

Jeff Roberson of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency reported the accident occurred at 7:54 p.m. in the "No Wake" zone of the marina when a bass boat and pontoon boat were involved in a minor accident while heading toward the fuel dock. The victim, Richard Curry, 52, of Jamestown Ohio, was on the pontoon boat and fell as he tried to step onto the dock.

Curry went under and did not resurface. Witnesses said he had removed his life jacket.
