SMITHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating a drowning at Center Hill Lake in DeKalb County.
According to media reports, a man drowned in an area of the lake near Cove Hollow Marina on Saturday. The identity of the man has not been released.
Officials with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said the man was sitting on the back of his personal watercraft, when he somehow fell off the back of it and never resurfaced.
Authorities began searching for his body around 4 p.m. and found it a few hours later about a mile-and-a-half downstream.
Officials are also investigating the drowning of a 27-year-old man in Old Hickory Lake in Hendersonville on Friday.
TWRA officials say Regan Jewett of Nashville was on a foam mat in the water and attempted to climb onto a personal water craft, when it somehow rolled over on top of him.
