Boater drowns in Mohican Lake

A 21-year-old man drowned yesterday afternoon in Mohican Lake, in the Sullivan County town of Lumberland, after jumping from a rowboat and attempting to swim to shore.

The Times Herald-Record reports:

The young man, who was with the group in the rowboat, jumped out of the boat and began swimming toward a dock located off Mohican Trail, near the Mohican Lake Inn.

Witnesses said that the young man suddenly got into trouble, began yelling for help and then went under the water about 20 feet from shore, Robels said.

The man's name has not yet been released.
