20yo who drowned in Kayak has been found

  The SONAR search team in yesterdays post, found the 20 year old's body in Eklutna lake. He was a solder from Texas, assigned to JBER, sad times for the family. Wish them the best.

  This calm looking lake is very long and in a valley, so a little wind can cause white caps and happen quickly. Another life ended too early.


  1. So sad. Such a young man. Would it be the water temperature that would cause hypothermia? I would think he would have been wearing a life jacket. I've always thought drowning in a kayak unless you were doing white water would be fairly unusual. Guess you could hit your head.

  2. Sherry is right... must be more to this story.
