PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT/WYMT) - Officials in Pulaski County say they've recovered the body of a man found in Lake Cumberland Sunday afternoon.

The Pulaski County Coroner says a fisherman discovered the man's body in the lake around 1:00 Sunday. He has identified the victim as Justin Shelton, 32.

It's early in this investigation, but the coroner believes the man fell into
the lake and his death is probably an accident.

"It's just one of those things where you just be blessed for everyday you have you never know when something might happen," Ty Furlong, a shuttle driver, says.

An autopsy is being conducted Monday.
