The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is currently investigating a drowning at Pymatuning State Park.

The female victim was recovered after the boat she was on reportedly drifted away. This left her in the water with a float.

The incident happened just before 5 p.m. on July 2. Attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful. 

This investigation is ongoing. Identification will come from the Ashtabula County coroner.

ODNR reminds all swimmers to stay in designated areas at the beach or lake, exercise caution in murky waters and keep a close eye on children while they are in the water.
