CONROE, Texas (AP) - A man has drowned after falling off a tube being pulled by a boat in a Southeast Texas lake.

Capt. Rusty Fincher of the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office says the 30-year-old’s body was recovered about three hours after authorities were summoned on Saturday night.

The Houston Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1NbpAvX ) reports that witnesses said that after the man fell off the boat-pulled tube, he went under and never resurfaced. The man, who had been on the water with family and friends from Houston, reportedly could swim.

His identity was not immediately released.
