The body of a Pittsburgh man was recovered from Pymatuning Lake late Wednesday afternoon, shortly after he jumped off a boat to help a woman who was already in the water.

Rescue crews report that 47 year-old Lawrence Page had never resurfaced after he dove from a pontoon boat.

Emergency officials from both Pennsylvania and Ohio responded.  Page’s body was located shortly before 5:00 PM.

Early reports did not indicate that the woman involved had required a rescue, nor did they identify the woman.

The investigation into the fatal incident continues.
