BODY OF DROWNING VICTIM RECOVERED

At 10:45 pm Montgomery County Precinct 1 Dive Team recovered the body of a 65-year-old male from Lake Conroe. The male had swum from shore a short distance to help another boat in distress. This is when he became distressed and went under just after 7 pm. Conroe Fire and North Montgomery County Fire assisted in the search using side-scan sonar and divers. Montgomery County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack responded to the scene early in the search to counsel the grieving family who witnessed the drowning. Mack, who has made several drownings on the lake said only one of those drownings the person was wearing a life vest. With the high winds today Lake Conroe was extremely choppy. Mack performed an inquest and ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center.
