WATERFORD TOWNSHIP (WWJ) - A 43-year-old man has died while kayaking in Waterford Township.

Police say the kayak flipped over on Pleasant Lake, near Elizabeth Lake and S. Williams Lake roads, around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. 

Witnesses told police the man was yelling for help before he slipped beneath the surface of the water, roughly 50 to 200 feet from shore.

The dive team responded to the lake and about four hours later found the man's body approximately 300 feet from shore in 15 feet of water.  

The man was not wearing a life jacket, according to police. His name was not released.
