Officials at the scene say he had been underwater for about 20 minutes before he was rescued. Sanchez had been swimming in the lake with some friends. He reportedly became too tired to swim back to the dock and began to struggle, that's when he went underwater.

He was flown to Covenant Medical Center by AeroCare where he was later pronounced dead.
