A McLennan County man drowned Sunday afternoon while trying to navigate an inflatable raft across an inlet on Lake Waco at Twin Bridges Park.
Police received a call of a man disappearing under water about 5:15 p.m., and three boats, one each belonging to the Waco Fire Department, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, began dragging the area.
The body was found about 6:15 p.m.
Thompson said Lansford and his wife, Kelsey, whose age was unavailable, and an unnamed companion were on the raft headed from a recreation area on the east to a boat ramp area on the west. Some of them fell off but got back on and made it to shore.
