An East Texas woman drowns on Cedar Creek Lake. Her sister is in brain dead at a local hospital.

They are both from Tool, a town about 10 miles west of Athens.

The game warden says they swam out too far off from Finley Park in Gun Barrel City.

Carolina Guzman, 12, swam out first. Her older sister swam out to rescue her. Rosalinda, 25, drowned. Witnesses were able to rescue her younger sister, but according to the game warden, Carolina is on life support.

This incident marks the fourth drowning this year in Cedar Creek Lake.
