Officials say the man and three children who drown while kyaking on Lake Superior near the Apostle Islands were wearing life jackets when their boat capsized.  

The kayak went down Thursday and by Friday crews recovered the bodies of 39-year-old Eric Fryman and his children, ages 3, 5, and 9.  

Fryman's 29-year-old wife was rescued from the waters between Madeline and Michigan islands six hours after the kayak went down.  

The family is from Loyal, Wisc.
