GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a teen-ager drowned over
the holiday weekend after jumping off a boat in a section of Lake
Lanier.

The 19-year-old Lilburn man's name was not released after Saturday's incident.

A sheriff's spokesman says the young man jumped off a boat at Cocktail Cove, appeared to be swimming normally but then his friends lost sight of him. He never resurfaced.

Rescue workers searched the area and found his body about 20 minutes after receiving a call for help at about 6:45 pm.

The man was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced
dead.
