GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 19-year-old man has drowned in a private sand-pit lake in Hall County.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release that deputies responded to a call of a man in the water around 6:15 a.m. Sunday.

About three hours later, the body of Devon Klein, of Grand Island, was pulled from the water.

Members of the Grand Island Rural Fire Department, Grand Island Fire Department, and both the Grand Island and Kearney Dive Rescue Teams helped in the recovery of Klein’s body.

Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances of Klein’s drowning, and an autopsy has been ordered.
