Tickfaw River boating accident claims the life of man


The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries identified the body of a man who went missing near the mouth of the Tickfaw River after a boating accident Saturday.

The man was identified as Freddie Richardson, 51, of Baton Rouge, according to a news release. Richardson’s body was recovered at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Richardson was a passenger in a 19-foot fiberglass boat when he and the boat’s operator went over a wake. This caused the boat to “violently” turn to the right, LDWF reported.

Richardson was ejected into the water without wearing a personal flotation device.

From Livingston Parish Fire Protection District 2:

Yesterday ended in tragedy on the Tickfaw River.

We responded with both of our Fire Dept boats to reports of a boating accident with a person missing.

We assisted the La Dept of Wildlife & Fisheries, TPSO, LPSO, Livingston FPD9, and Manchac VFD in the search and recovery of the victim.
