NORFORK, Ark. (AP) - Baxter County officials say it appears a Mountain Home woman drowned in Norfork Lake.

According to Sheriff John Montgomery, deputies and emergency crews were called Monday evening to a spot near a boat launch at Cranfield Park. They recovered 35-year-old Cassandra Lynn Gordon from the water but were unable to revive her.

Investigators said Tuesday the woman had been swimming with friends. The sheriff’s office said she was seen standing beside a raft about 10-15 minutes before her body was found about 15 feet from the bank in 5 feet of water.

The body was to be sent to the state medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of death.
