Hillsdale County Undersheriff William Whorley said the accident happened about 2:40 p.m. in Bear Lake. It's in Cambria Township, about six miles southwest of Hillsdale and about 12 miles north of the Ohio line. According to Whorley, 49-year-old Cynthia Hiszak of Temperance was out boating on the lake with her husband, James.
