HOUSTON (FOX 26) - The Twin Lakes RV Resort is a popular spot in Manvel for swimming and diving. It has a 31 acre aquifer-fed lake that's 50 feet deep.
Authorities say there was a group of 12-15 young adults swimming on Thursday afternoon off of Highway 6 in Manvel at Twin Lakes RV Resort when one 24-year-old man tried to swim to a large yellow floating device.
Two jumped in to help him when they saw that he was becoming fatigued, but with no success after they lost sight of him.
A dive team recovered the body later on Thursday evening, around 9:00 p.m. Police say this appears to be nothing more than a tragic accident.
There is now a GoFundMe in place for the victim, Timothy Beatty, and his family, organized by Nina Flores.
