New information released on FGCU lake drowning

Published: Updated:

New information has been released about the student who drowned in Lake Como at FGCU.

According to a report from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, while the boat was out on the lake, it stopped so all the passengers, including Graham McGrath, could swim in the lake.

McGrath was swimming beside the boat before not being seen again.

One of the passengers noticed that McGrath was far away but continued to follow the edge of the boat before disappearing.

Upon discovering that McGrath was no longer in eyesight of the other passengers, police were immediately called.

A search for McGrath was conducted where his body was later found and pulled from the water.

Vigils were set up by fellow college students in memory of McGrath.
