Drowning on Lake Texoma

7-12-05 - The Oklahoma Lake Patrol recovered the body of a drowning victim around 5:15pm Tuesday in waters off East Burns Run near Cartwright, Oklahoma.

They'd been looking for 25-year-old Cleto Sarmiento Sanchez for about an hour after he slipped beneath the water. The Sherman man was swimming with his girlfriend near, but outside, a designated swimming area. Witnesses say there is a severe dropoff in the area where the man drowned. His body was recovered from about 8 feet of water, 60 feet from shore.
