WESTERN, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a 55-year-old central New York woman has drowned while swimming in an Oneida County lake with family members.

Troopers say Maryellen Hall of Rome was swimming in the Delta Reservoir in the town of Western around 6 p.m. Sunday. She started struggling and family members tried to help her back into their boat without success.

A passing boater managed to get Hall into the boat and began CPR.

Hall was taken to Rome Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
