TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities are trying to recover the body of a man who drown Saturday morning in Tempe's Town Lake.
Witnesses reported seeing a person struggling in the water around 9 a.m. They told authorities that the person slipped out of sight and did not come to the surface again.
Tempe police officers and firefighters responded but weren't able to find the man.
Jim Smith of the Tempe Fire Department tells television station KNXV that officials are now handing the situation as a recovery effort.
