Authorities said Michael drowned after getting into trouble as he was swimming across the cove on the eastern side of the lake. His brother, 27-year-old James Thomas, swam out to save Michael, but he also began to have problems.

A group of people on shore, including an off-duty nurse, saved James, and he was transported to a local hospital.
