A Colorado man drowned in Lake McConaughy this weekend, apparently after being unable to swim back to his boat.
Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reports conservation officers and the Lake McConaughy Dive Rescue team responded to an emergency call late Sunday morning.
Two anglers had secured the body about two miles west of Van’s Lakeview. Divers recovered the body.
No identification has been released, except that he was from Littleton, Colorado.
The preliminary investigation determined the man jumped from a boat for a swim. He was not able to swim back to the boat. Neither alcohol not foul play is suspected, according to Game and Parks. The victim was not wearing a life jacket.
The investigation into the drowning continues.
