GRAYSON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A 19-year-old drowned in Rough River Lake on Monday. 

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife officials say Bryan Sadler swam about 200 yards across the lake and was on the way back to the beach area when he began to struggle.

Officials say a friend swam to help him, but Sadler was pulled under the water.

Divers entered the water a little past 5 p.m. Monday and found Sadler’s body about an hour later.
