The man who died in a boating accident on the Tennessee River in Morgan County on February 2nd has been identified as 59-year-old Stephen Johnson from Decatur.
According to Morgan County Coroner Jeff Chunn, Johnson's death was ruled an accidental drowning, but they are waiting on results from the full autopsy.
Chunn said Johnson had some health issues that might have contributed to what happened and the temperature of the water at the time could have been a factor.
Several emergency agencies responded to the boating accident near the railroad bridge on the Tennessee River. A boater called 911 Central Dispatch saying he saw an unoccupied boat possibly under a barge that was tied up at a mooring dock.
