Swimmer Drowns

An investigation is underway after a 40-year-old man drowned in a lake southwest of Grand Junction this past weekend.

Deputy Henry Stoffel with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office says the man was on a family outing and was swimming across Enoch Lake when he slipped below the surface Saturday.

Stoffel says the lake in Glade Park is not very large, and authorities do not get a lot of calls from there.

The victim’s name and hometown have not yet been released.
