Man drowns in central Kentucky lake

Search crews have recovered the body of a man who drowned in a central Kentucky lake.

Crews pulled the body out of Lake Carnico, near Carlisle, just hours ago. Friends have identified the victim as 37-year-old Silverio Herrera Savala. Friends say they had been at the lake less than 10 minutes when Savala disappeared. His friends called 911 for help. Crews from Nicholas County Water Rescue recovered the body.

Other dive teams were on their way to help with the search, but were called off after the body was found.
