Second fisherman’s body found after Lake Lanier boat collision

The body of the second fisherman reported missing after a boat collision on Lake Lanier has been found, authorities said. 

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources recovered the body of Nick Schimweg, 38, of Cumming about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.  According to officials Schimweg’s body was discovered about 50 feet away from the site of Wednesday’s crash.  

Divers recovered the body of the other missing fisherman, 59-year-old Brianislav Prazich, in about 33 feet of water near the crash site Thursday afternoon.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is expected to take several weeks to complete, according to the DNR.
