Man Drowns, Wife In Hospital

A Neches man drowns in Lake Palestine. His wife is in critical condition at a local hospital.

They are believed to be in their 40's. According to the game warden working the case, the couple swam out yesterday evening off of FM 346.

A witness says the man did not know how to swim. His body was recovered this morning by the Rusk County dive team.

We cannot release the victims' names until officials notify their families.
