Authorities say they've recovered the body of a man who drowned at a Pennsylvania state park.

The Pottsville Republican & Herald reports police in Rush Township did not immediately release the name of the 19-year-old whose body was recovered Sunday evening at Tuscarora State Park in Schuylkill County.

Officials say the Berks County man was swimming with friends when he went underwater and didn't resurface.

The Republican & Herald report says rangers and police were called to the scene around 5:30 p.m. He was pulled from the water soon after but pronounced dead at a hospital at 7:45 p.m.
