KINGSTON, Okla. (KXII) - Troopers have identified the man who fell off a personal watercraft into Lake Texoma and drowned Tuesday evening.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the body of Brashon Keith Waddles, 19, of Denison, Texas, was recovered just after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in 28-foot deep water 150 feet from the shore.

Troopers said just before 7 p.m. Tuesday the driver of the watercraft, 19-year-old Anthony Holland Jr, of Sherman, attempted to make a sharp maneuver near Oakview Beach south of Kingston Tuesday evening when Waddles fell, went underwater and did not resurface.

The trooper’s report stated that Holland was wearing a life jacket, but that Waddles was not.
