According to Corporal Reginal King, a spokesperson for the Alabama State Troopers in West Alabama, the victim has since been identified as Rocael Ramos, who went under the water while swimming in Lake Lurleen but did not resurface.

Ramos was transported to Northport Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Troopers with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency's Marine Patrol Division are investigating the case and no other details were available Monday.
