SILVER CITY (AP) - Authorities in western South Dakota say a man has drowned near the dam on the east side of Pactola Lake.

Officials from several agencies were dispatched Sunday afternoon for the reported drowning, which happened after the man got out of a boat to swim. Authorities say he wasn't able to make it back to the watercraft.

The 130-foot deep water has so far impeded efforts to locate the victim, and further attempts are set to resume Monday morning. The Burleigh County Sheriff's Department will help in the recovery using a remotely operated vehicle.

Authorities aren't releasing the victim's name until his family is notified.
