Douglas Lake drowning
The body of a 50-year-old Asheville man was recovered Saturday morning from Douglas Lake in Jefferson County. Crews worked to recover the drowning victim Friday afternoon and evening, but worsening weather conditions called for a search suspension late Friday night. Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Coffey said the drowning occurred at 12:30 p.m. near the Nina access area. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said 50-year-old Daryl Lee Smart of Asheville was swimming with his girlfriend off their pontoon boat, when a breeze drifted the boat away from them. Smart jumped into the water urging his dog to jump into the water as well when he went under and did not resurface. Officials say Smart's body resurfaced around 7:20 am Saturday as crews were launching boats to continue their search.
