Weekend Drowning

Wagoner, OK – One person is dead after a drowning at Fort Gibson Lake. The Oklahoma Lake Patrol says it happened Saturday afternoon at the Rocky Point Recreational area.

The Patrol says 47-year-old Michael Smith of Locust Grove was fishing in a remote area of the lake when he decided to jump into the water to cool off. A fishing companion says he did not resurface.

His body was recovered with the help of the White Horn Cove First Responders and taken the Tulsa Medical Examiner's Office.
