Body of swimmer found in Lake Waxahachie

WAXAHACHIE, Texas — Authorities say the body of a swimmer has been recovered after he went underwater a day earlier in Lake Waxahachie.

A spokeswoman for the city of Waxahachie, located about 30 miles south of Dallas, says the swimmer’s body was recovered Sunday morning. She says after the man was seen going underwater Saturday, witnesses called 911 and tried to reach him without success. The victim hasn’t been identified.

Meanwhile, officials in Little Elm, located about 40 miles north of Dallas, say 17-year-old Theo Nash died after going underwater as he and some companions were swimming across an area of Lake Lewisville on Friday evening. City officials say his body was found underwater about two hours later. Nash, an incoming senior at Little Elm High School, was on the school’s football team.
