The Associated Press - August 27, 2018 12:55 pm

A Tulsa man drowned Sunday afternoon in Fort Gibson Lake at Cherokee Landing in Sequoyah State Park, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports.

Robert D. Golden, 29, was attempting to swim across the cove and went down about halfway across, the Patrol said. The incident occurred just before 4 p.m. about five miles west of Hulbert, Oklahoma.

People on the scene saw Golden go underwater and brought him to shore, where they started CPR until emergency crews arrived. He died at the Wagoner Hospital at 5:10 p.m.
