Oklahoma Highway Patrol recovers Fort Cobb drowning victim

FORT COBB, Okla. (AP) -- Lake Patrol officers found the body of a 72-year-old Tuttle man who drowned in Fort Cobb Lake.

Authorities say they found Tommy Park's body Thursday. Park had fallen into the lake with his 15-year-old grandson on Wednesday evening when their fishing boat overturned.

Authorities say the two tried to swim to shore, but the grandfather kept going under the water.

Officials say Park's grandson Kyle Pownzen pulled his grandfather from under the water several times, but at some point he couldn't and had to swim to shore.
