Man Drowns At Metamora State Park, Possibly Caught In Weeds

METAMORA, Mich. (AP) - A 32-year-old man who may have been tangled in vegetation has drowned at a state park in Lapeer County.

The sheriff's office says Pattamas Johnson of Swartz Creek suddenly disappeared Sunday afternoon while outside the marked swimming area at Metamora-Hadley State Park. He was with his girlfriend, family and friends.

Efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

The sheriff's office calls it an "unfortunate tragedy."
