A 55-year-old man drowned in Lake Camelot when he jumped in the water and tried to swim after his pontoon boat that was floating away from shore, police said.

The Rome Police Department responded to the Lake Camelot Property Owner’s Association boat landing in the 300 block of Eighth Avenue for a report of a possible drowning around 9:50 a.m. Monday, according to a release.

Officers found a man face down on the shore at the Salisbury Beach Club, officials said. The man’s neighbor and witness at the scene told police they had just pulled the man from Lake Camelot.
