A Christian County man has drowned in a scuba diving accident at an Arkansas lake.
Officials say Philip Schwab of Stonington was diving in 74 feet of water when he ran out of air. Schwab was not a certified diver but was diving with someone who was. The certified diver also ran out of air but was able to get to the surface in time.
Authorities had to search for three hours before they located Schwab’s body. It was the third drowning at Bull Shoals Lake in northern Arkansas so far this year.
