TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have recovered 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.
Police Sgt. Mike Pooley says the fire department's dive team found the man's body Saturday afternoon. He was identified as 56-year-old Joseph O'Conner, a city employee.
Pooley says O'Conner fell into the lake and there does not appear to be any foul play.
The investigation is ongoing.
