HUNTSVILLE -- A 26-year-old man drowned Sunday near Cemetery Point at Pineview Reservoir.
Weber County Sheriff's Deputy Cpl. Mark Horton said the man was swimming out to a buoy around 3 p.m. when he went under the water.
Horton said a friend saw the man struggling but could not get to him in time to save him.
He said the incident is being investigated as an accident and only limited information was available Sunday.
Officials said the man's body was recovered at 9:30 p.m. just before they were about to stop searching for the night. The man's name was not released, pending notification of family.
Horton said earlier Sunday that he had been told the man was from out of the country.
