A man from Arkansas has drowned in Table Rock Lake.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reports the drowning took place near North Indian Creek around 4:00 Wednesday afternoon when 31-year-old Nicholas Hart of West Memphis attempted to swim in the lake but went under the water and never resurfaced.
Sam Carpenter of the Patrol tells Ozarks First that divers from the Western Taney County Fire District did eventually recover Hart’s Body from the Lake. Hart was pronounced dead by Stone County Coroner John Cunnyngham.
This is the fifth drowning death on Table Rock Lake in 2020.
