Man drowns in Enoch Lake during family outing

GRAND JUNCTION — An investigation is underway after a 40-year-old man drowned in a lake in western Colorado.

Deputy Henry Stoffel with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office tells The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel the man was on a family outing and was swimming across Enoch Lake when he slipped below the surface Saturday.

Stoffel says the lake in Glade Park is not very large, and authorities do not get a lot of calls from there.

The victim’s name and hometown have not been released.
