Authorities Identify Man Who Drowned In Lake

Authorities have identified a man who drowned in Lake Palestine on Saturday, and his wife, who is still in critical condition.

Jose Garcia, 46, drowned about 20 yards off the lake shore, close to FM 346 in Cherokee County. The game warden in that area says Jose's wife, Ruth, 41, is in ICU.

A witness says it did not look like Jose could swim. His body was recovered Sunday morning.
