Recovery team searching for woman who fell off party barge in Lake Travis


A recovery team with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department returned to Lake Travis Sunday to search for the body of a woman who presumably drowned in Lake Travis on Saturday.

Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services says a young woman fell off the top deck of a party barge on Lake Travis.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says the 25-year-old woman may have hit her head on the way down.

It happened just after 7 p.m. Saturday near Volente Beach. Just before 8 p.m. on Saturday, the search turned into recovery mode.

This is the second drowning this month on Lake Travis.

A man in his 50s never resurfaced after going under earlier this month. Dive teams searched for his body for several days, but it was never recovered.
