HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) -

A teen's body was recovered from a lake in Henderson Thursday night.

Jonathan Cano, 17, of Carlisle High School, died while trying to swim across the lake, according to an official with Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Officials with the Henderson Police Department said just after 7 p.m. they received a call in reference to a possible drowning near the gazebo at Lake Forest Park.

Officers attempted to locate a victim in the water but were unsuccessful. 

Henderson Fire Department, Rusk County Rescue, Rusk County Sheriff’s Department and Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Wardens responded to the scene and assisted with the search.

At 8:20 p.m., Cano's body was recovered from the water.

Late Thursday night, Carlisle ISD posted on Facebook that Cano, a student, died suddenly.

"It is at a time like this that reminds us all how precious life is. Today and in the days to come, as our Carlisle Students and Faculty grieve the loss of our friend and student, there will be counselors available to help anyone who needs assistance in dealing with this loss. They will be available all day in the High School, Junior High and Elementary Buildings. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Cano family. Jonathan was always smiling, respectful, a great athletic team member and an unforgettable young man! Our hearts ache with theirs. Please join us in lifting this family up in prayers now and during the difficult days ahead."

A man who was out fishing with friends at the time of the incident says Cano jumped in to try and save a friend who was struggling in the water but then began struggling himself and went under. The man and others jumped into to help but they were unable to find Cano in the murky waters.
