PINEVIEW, Weber County — Dive teams late Sunday recovered the body of a 26-year-old man who drowned near Cemetery Point.

The man was swimming out to a buoy at Pineview Reservoir with friends just after 3 p.m., Weber County Sheriff's Cpl. Mark Horton said. The man started to struggle as he was swimming, and went under the water before anyone could reach him.

The man's companions and witnesses nearby saw him go under the water, but he never resurfaced, Horton said.

The drowning is currently being ruled an accident, and exhaustion is a possible contributing factor. The man's name was not immediately released Sunday.
