Doale and another person were on the lake in a 18-foot 1999 Regal boat around 8:30 pm Sunday when the boat broke down and drifted close to shore.
Jumped into Deep Water
Maine Warden Service Spokesperson, Mark Latti, said Doale jumped out of the boat to push it away from the shore “near a deep area of Sebago Lake State Park at the mouth of the Songo River.”

Latti said Daole “did not know how to swim.” Witnesses called police after hearing yelling.
