Texas teen drowns in Grand Caillou
Terrebonne Parish sheriff's deputies say a Texas teen fell off an oyster boat in Grand Caillou last week, and his body was recovered early Saturday.
Capt. Malcolm Wolfe said 19-year-old Rigardo Dominguez, of Texas City fell overboard about 7 p.m. Thursday in Bayou Grand Caillou.
Others on board the Texas-based oyster boat saw him fall and alerted authorities, who searched the water for several hours without luck, Wolfe said.
Deputies said a fisherman spotted Dominguez's body about 1:30 a.m. Saturday while checking his skimmers. The body was found floating atop the water about a mile away from the spot where Dominquez fell in.
An autopsy determined that Dominquez had drowned.
