Drowning

The body of a 45-year-old man who drowned in Lake Wateree this weekend has been found.

Kershaw County Coroner John Fellers says divers found the body of Terry Lee Baker, of Fort Lawn, yesterday afternoon at Taylor's Landing. Fellers says authorities are still trying to determine what happened.

Family members said Baker disappeared Saturday after he jumped from a pontoon boat into the water to help his stepson and three-year-old grandson who were tubing and struggling in choppy water.
