Drowning reported on Collin County lake


By Scott Harvey

Lake Lavon – A boating trip on Lake Lavon in Collin County ends in tragedy, as a 58-year-old man drowns.

Authorities say the unidentified man and his friend were preparing to launch their boat, when it got away from them.

The friend made it to shore, but the victim tried to retrieve the boat and didn't make it back to shore. He was apparently weighted down by his jeans and could not swim back.
