Morgan’s Point Resort police recovered the body of 31-year-old man that went underwater at Temple Lake Park Sunday afternoon.

Officials said Temple Police were alerted of a possible drowning around 1:57 p.m.

Four males were out swimming when two of them swam out to a buoy. One of the males who Temple police identified as a Fort Hood soldier,  went under after several waves came across the buoy.

The other male tried to search for him but could not find him.

Temple PD said they rarely see drownings in the area and this would be the first recovery of a body in 2017.


He was not wearing a life jacket and his name will not be released until family is notified.
