BROWN COUNTY, Texas (KCBD) - A Lubbock woman drowned while swimming on Saturday afternoon at Lake Brownwood, according to Lake Patrol Chief Troy Henderson.

The 62-year-old woman was wearing a life jacket while swimming, and was found by family members just before 1 p.m.

Chief Henderson says the woman, now identified as Cathie Breunig, owns a house on the lake.

Her life jacket was spotted at Minton’s Draw, near the state park. She was still wearing the life jacket when she was found.

Chief Henderson says although she was wearing a life jacket, it appears she was not wearing it correctly.
