A Wichita man is dead after a weekend kite-boarding accident at a central Kansas lake.
The 42-year-old was knocked unconscious after a gust of wind caught his kite Saturday before it hit the water on the west side of Cheney Lake.
Cheney State Park ranger Mike Satterlee says the accident occurred about 5:30 p.m. Saturday on the west side of the Kingman County lake. Witnesses pulled the man from the water and administered CPR until rescue crews arrived and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Satterlee says kite boarding is common on the east side of the lake but moves to the west side when the wind is more favorable there.
