The West Virginia Department of Natural Resources is expected to release the name of a man who died in a Meigs County jet ski accident Wednesday.

An officer with the DNR tells WOUB the investigator may be able to release the man's name on Friday.

Meigs County Sheriff Robert Beegle said the man fell from the watercraft and was immediately hit by a boat near the community of Syracuse. 

The Sheriff said the man died before emergency workers were able to get to the scene.
