Travis County Sheriff's officials say 21-year old Tai Le, from Garland, drowned in the lake after jumping off a cliff into the water. Le and friends were on a party barge on the lake; the boat captain called 9-1-1 after Le went under and didn't resurface.

Dive teams spent a portion of Sunday afternoon searching for Le, but his body was not recovered until Monday morning. Divers found Le's body approximately 50 feet below the lake's surface.
