NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - According to Nacogdoches County Game Warden Heath Bragg, members of the Texas Parks & Wildlife dive team recovered the body the Huntington man Sunday morning after a boat he and his brother were in capsized Saturday--perhaps hit by a large wave . Officials say the wave capsized the boat, knocking the two brothers--Henry Dale Plummer and Little Jack Lieb--into the Sam Rayburn Reservoir Saturday night around 7:15.
Bragg said Plummer was able to swim to a nearby by swamp.
"He was able to holler to somebody on shore. And a man that was at his house heard it. He came out in a boat and was able to get him off the stump," Warden Bragg stated.
A dive team arrived on the scene Sunday at 9 AM to search for the missing man. They began the dive at 10 AM. They recovered Lieb's body in less than 10 minutes. Divers found the body 28 feet underwater.
