Bruce Orlando Yansen, 21, of the 18200 block of Bowie Mill Road in Olney, went under while swimming Friday afternoon and his body was found by fire and rescue personnel at about 9:42 a.m., officials said.

Mr. Yansen and two others were swimming in an area of the reservoir where the water level suddenly dropped off. Mr. Yansen panicked and went under the water, officials said.

Another of the swimmers tried to rescue him but was unsuccessful.
