An 18-year-old Lockport man who was fishing in the Erie Canal near the Exchange Street Bridge died last night.

It took more about two hours to find the body of David Lee Draper after a call came in just before 10 p.m. from friends who said he fell into the murky water.

City, county and state police all gathered to search for the body while crowds watched. He eventually was found around midnight.
