Rayne man drowns while fishing

Rayne (KPLC) - A Rayne man slipped into a bayou while fishing and drowned, authorities said.

Christopher Bouillion, 37, was fishing off a bridge in Rayne Tuesday — which he often did — when the accident occurred, Acadia Parish Sheriff Wayne Melancon said in a news release. Boullion's vehicle was located near a bridge and his body was found in the water.

It is believed that Bouillion got tangled in the line, which caused him to fall in the water, Melancon said.
