Two bodies recently were recovered from Lake Ray Hubbard after being reported missing on July 4.

The two swimmers had jumped off a boat into the lake and never resurfaced. The two men were both in their 30s.

The bodies were discovered by members of the Dallas Police Department’s dive team the morning after being reported missing.

In June, a 27-year-old male drowned in Lewisville Lake after jumping off a boat. His body was found by the Lewisville Fire Department dive team and the Game Warden’s office with the assistance of sonars.

Just a week before the 27-year-old male drowned, a 19-year-old male drowned in Lewisville Lake after swimming after an inflatable that floated away.

With the busy summer months, the National Drowning Prevention Alliance shared some key tips to help prevent a drowning incident, including:

  1. Have a designated, active water watcher at all times
    1. Adult water watchers need to provide close, constant, and capable supervision.
    2. Water watchers must stay focused and never be distracted by cell phones, conversations, or other diversions.
    3. Water watchers cannot be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
    4. Water watchers should rotate every 15 minutes.
  2. Identify weak and non-swimmers and always practice touch supervision by reaching out and touching non-swimmers at all times.
  3. Swim near a lifeguard whenever possible. With an adult water watcher designated, even if lifeguards are present.
  4. Enroll your child in high-quality swim lessons as early as their first birthday. But keep in mind that even good swimmers can drown.
  5. Do not overly rely on one layer of protection, as layers can break down and are designed to be combined to reduce risk.
  6. Learn CPR with rescue breaths and what to do in an emergency.
