CLINTON — A Pontiac man apparently drowned Wednesday in Clinton Lake.

DeWitt County Coroner Randy Rice said Armando Borrego Jr., 53, was pronounced dead at 6:05 p.m.

Rice said Mr. Borrego had been in the lake with his wife. About 4:30 p.m., he was swimming to get to his Jet Ski when he went under and did not resurface.

Officers from the Department of Conservation were assisted by dive teams in finding Mr. Borrego.

An autopsy was to be performed Thursday afternoon.
