Texas Parks & Wildlife Department game wardens from Denton County received a call about 1:15 p.m. Saturday about a possible drowning at the swim beach at Isle du Bois unit at Ray Roberts Lake.

A 25-year-old man from Valley View was helping a child get back on a flotation device and was unable to get himself back up, said Darla Barr, a game warden.

The child safely got back to shore, but bystanders were unable to find the man, Barr said.

A dive rescue team from the Lewisville Fire Department and sonar radars were able to recover the body at 4:33 p.m. Saturday.
