Body of 49-year-old man who saved son recovered from central Alta. lake

The body of a 49-year-old man in a central Alberta lake was recovered Thursday.
The man was trying to rescue his child when he disappeared underwater at Wizard Lake, approximately 70 kilometers southwest of Edmonton, just before 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, RCMP said.
A medical examiner arrived on scene around 12 p.m. Thursday, following a search led by Fish & Wildlife Conservation officers, Leduc County Fire & Rescue, and the RCMP underwater recovery team.
The child was rescued by the man, according to police.
Witness Joey Ogden said he noticed the search at Wizard Lake Wednesday night.
“There were two or three boats dredging the water, so we figured that there was something bad,” said Ogden. “Unfortunately (he) saved one life, but not his own.”
