Newlywed Drowns In Lake

A newlywed from Winnsboro drowned in a lake about midnight last night.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff's Department, it happened at Lake Cypress Springs at Dogwood Park.

Tianchai Henson, 39, was reportedly walking in the lake with his wife, when he stepped off a drop-off area. Henson's wife, Becky Sue Henson, 20, says her husband did not know how to swim. Divers located his body about 25 feet from the boat ramp in about 8-foot-deep waters.

The couple had just gotten married one week ago. Officials say Tianchai Henson had two children and was expecting a third.
