NEW YORK - A Sloatsburg man drowned in a Harriman State Park lake on Sunday evening.
The New York State Police say it happened around 8:15 p.m. near the Lake Sebago Boat Launch.
Troopers responded to Seven Lakes in the town of Haverstraw for a report of a possible drowning.
They say that 43-year-old Bogdan Kardynal was last seen entering the water and attempting to swim when he went under and did not resurface.
A witness jumped into the lake to assist Kardynal but was unable to find him.
The Thiells Fire Department and Water Rescue located Kardynal’s body a short time later and removed him from the lake.
The Rockland County Medical examiner will perform an autopsy.
