Another drowning occurs at Canyon Lake

Second water fatality within last two months

Another holiday tragedy at Canyon Lake occurred July 5 when the body of a San Antonio man, the victim of a drowning, was recovered at about 6 p.m.

The identity of the 26 year-old Alamo City resident hasn't been released. On May 30 during Memorial Day Weekend, 54-year-old San Antonio resident Ramiro Betancourt drowned after falling into the lake.

According to published reports, the latest drowning victim stepped off an underwater ledge and went into deeper water. By the time Canyon Lake fire/EMS crew recovered his body, he had already been underwater for several minutes.
