PARIS, Tex. -- A man drowned in the city of Paris clear well Monday night at the city's water plant on Lake Crook Road.

City manager Kevin Carruth says a diver contracted by the city got his air supply and communication cables tangled in the pumps.

The other divers with the 24-year-old Fort Worth man tried to rescue him but were unable to get him out.

Emergency crews recovered his body, trapped and lifeless, at the bottom of the well.

Carruth says the water supply was not contaminated.
