Man Dragged Down by Crab Pot Dies

Authorities say a man has drowned in Northern California after he fell over the side of a boat while dumping a crab pot into the water.
 
Marin County Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Giannini says the man dropped the pot in Tomales Bay Sunday morning, and didn't realize that his leg had become tangled in a rope attached to the pot.

  He was pulled overboard and dragged under by the weight of the pot.
 
Giannini tells the San Francisco Chronicle the man wasn't wearing a life jacket at the time.
 
Rescue crews later found his body. His name was not immediately released.
