SC man's body pulled from lake

Jun 15, 2010 6:25:00 AM - thestate.com
Searchers have found the body of a South Carolina man who drowned after jumping into a Spartanburg County lake to cool off.

Multiple media outlets reported that 27-year-old Carl Wade Mitskoff of Lyman had been fishing with friends on Saturday afternoon when he jumped off a pontoon boat to cool off.

Coroner Rusty Clevenger says Mitskoff's body was found late Monday morning.

Holly Springs Volunteer Fire Department Chief Lee Jeffcoat says one of Mitskoff's friends jumped in to help but was unable to get Mitskoff before he went under and didn't resurface.

Jeffcoat says a water rescue team arrived within five minutes but couldn't find the victim. The body was found about 100 yards from where he went under the surface.
