A Spearfish man is dead after collapsing while fishing at Pactola Reservoir and falling into the basin below the spillway.
The Pennington County Sheriff's Office says the 39-year-old man was fishing with a relative Wednesday afternoon when he collapsed. Emergency crews removed him from the water but he was pronounced dead en route to a Rapid City hospital in an ambulance.
An autopsy is planned. Authorities did not immediately identify the man.
