Man Drowns While Noodling In Oklahoma County

Updated:
EDMOND, Okla. (AP) -- A man died while noodling with five friends in a creek east of Edmond.

Edmond Police haven't identified the victim, who is described as a Hispanic male in his 30s.

Police say the men were noodling in a creek about 150 yards north of State Highway 66. Noodling is a practice that involves catching large catfish with bare hands.

Police say the men split up for a while, then found the victim submerged around 3 PM.

He was taken to an Edmond hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
