AUSTIN -- A 39-year-old man who died after possibly drowning at Hippie Hollow Park on Lake Travis has been identified.

According to the Travis County Sheriff's Office, Miguel Garcia of El Paso was swimming with friends near their boat when the wind blew the boat away. Witnesses say they saw Garcia go under water while the group was swimming back towards the boat.

EMS responded to a 9-1-1 call at 5:40 p.m. Paramedics performed CPR on Garcia for about one hour, before pronouncing him dead at the scene at 6:42 p.m.

The medical examiner will determine the official cause of death, but sheriff's detectives say all evidence points to accidental drowning.
