Man drowns in Lake Jordan

NEW HILL (AP) — A man has drowned in North Carolina’s Lake Jordan after swimming with his girlfriend.

Local media outlets reported a 20-year-old man and his girlfriend were swimming in the lake in Chatham County on Sunday when they began to struggle in the water.

Bystanders were able to pull the woman to safety but were unable to reach the man.

The man’s name has not been released.

Crews from Chatham, Wake and Harnett counties responded, along with a crew from Apex. The man’s body was found about 7:30 p.m.

Some boat ramps at the lake were closed Sunday because of high water levels.
