A 24-year-old man drowned Saturday at Joe Pool Lake in Grand Prairie, according to medical examiner records.

Brandon Bor, of Dallas, was identified Sunday by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office. Multiple people called the fire department at 2:53 p.m. after seeing a man swimming near the beach who wasn’t coming up for air, according to Star-Telegram media partner WFAA.

When Grand Prairie Fire Department divers found Bor, he had been underwater for about 30 minutes and was not wearing a life jacket. He was taken in critical condition to Medical City Arlington, where he later died, WFAA reported.
