SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) - Police say a man and a boy whose bodies were recovered from a West Texas lake apparently accidentally drowned.

San Angelo police identified the victims as 61-year-old Ronald Strain and 4-year-old Braxton Jewel, both of San Angelo. Officer Tracy Gonzalez had no immediate information Monday on the relationship between the man and the boy.

Gonzalez says police believe the pair on Friday went to a Lake Nasworthy spillway area to go fishing. The bodies were recovered Friday night. Autopsies were ordered.

San Angelo police initially said the child was 5 years old, but later determined that the boy was 4 and would have celebrated a birthday early next month.
