MADILL, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 24-year-old Texas man has died at a hospital after he was pulled from Lake Texoma in southern Oklahoma.

The highway patrol says Roy A. Seims of Denison, Texas, died Sunday night at an Oklahoma hospital. Seims had been swimming with friends in Lake Texoma when he went underwater but did not resurface.

The highway patrol says the incident happened Sunday afternoon at the Rooster Creek Swim Beach Area at Lake Texoma. Authorities say Seims was pulled from the water by his friends from an area about 100 yards from the shore.

The highway patrol says Seims was taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead later Sunday.
