Bye Drowns in Bay Lake

A legendary Minnesota athlete lost his life in Brainerd area waters over the weekend. 82-year-old Billy Bye drown in Bay Lake Friday afternoon.

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl tells KLKS News, He was on a pontoon boat with family and friends, when the propeller became entangled in a rope attached to a marker buoy. He entered the water to free the prop. After working to free the boat, Bye was unable to climb back aboard the boat. Eventually the boat drifted away from Bye and he went under. His body was pulled from the water by a passing boater.

Bye had a home in the Twin Cities and a second home on Bay Lake.
