KETK Newsroom — Smith County crews have recovered the body of a 40-year old drowning victim late Sunday evening.
The drowning happened in a small private pond, in the 13500 block of Highway 155 just before 5:30 p.m.
The Smith County Sheriff's Office says the woman rowed out to the middle of the pond on a boat. She then jumped into the water and began swimming. That's when authorities say she went under.
Her body was later recovered.
