A 55-year-old McAlester man drowned Saturday, July 8, on Lake Eufaula at Elm Point in Pittsburg County, according to the Marine Enforcement Division of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
The victim was identified as Allen Wright.
Wright reportedly was fishing off an inflatable tube when the device drifted from his party into deeper water.
Witnesses said the victim fell off the tube, went under the water and never resurfaced.
His body was recovered from the water approximately two hours later.
Elm Point is about eight miles east and six miles north of McAlester.
