ATLANTA (AP) - A 28-year-old man apparently drowned Sunday after falling from a dock into Lake Lanier.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Nicole Bailes said the man struck his head in a fall Sunday and never resurfaced from the lake. The accident happened at Sunset Cove.

Bailes told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (https://on-ajc.com/1tNAHRd ) that alcohol may have contributed to the accident. Authorities were sending sonar equipment from south Georgia to assist in the search. Divers from the sheriff’s office and the Department of Natural Resources plan to use the sonar equipment to help locate the victim.
