GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Hall County fire officials have recovered a man's body from Sunset Cove on Lake Lanier.
Fire Chief David Kimbrell told the Gainesville Times that rescue crews found the 20-year-old man in about 17 feet of water Tuesday and that he had been underwater for about 40 minutes.
Kimbrell says the man entered the water from the shore and tried swimming with two others to a boat that was docked at Sunset Cove.
Kimbrell says the man grew exhausted and eventually went under.
The man's identity has not yet been released and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources is investigating.
