Someone spotted a person struggling to swim in Lake Norman on Tuesday, and a 45-year-old man’s body was found in the water later that night, the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office said.
The man’s name has not been released.
The swimmer in difficulty was reported by someone passing by on the Williamson Road Bridge, which is in Mooresville. Deputies responded and found an empty Honda Odyssey near the bridge, but they didn’t see the swimmer, the sheriff’s office said.
Around 7 p.m., he was located with help from a dive team, sonar equipment and a drone, the sheriff’s office said.
