Man, woman drown in NJ lake

OAKLAND, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities say a man and a woman have drowned while swimming with others in a northern New Jersey lake.

The group was swimming Tuesday afternoon in Ramapo Lake in Oakland when the woman apparently began struggling in the water. The man then tried to help her but soon started struggling as well.

The bodies were found later Tuesday. No other injuries were reported. The names of the man and woman have not been released.

Ramapo Lake is located on the border of Bergen and Passaic Counties and is patrolled by state park police.
