CASS COUNTY, Texas (KSLA) - A Dallas man was enjoying his weekend on the lake when tragedy occurred.

While out on Lake Wright Patman on June 19, Muhammad Usman Amjad and an unidentified woman were riding a jet ski when they both fell off. The woman was able to climb back onto the jet ski, but the man never resurfaced. Neither of them was wearing a personal floatation device.

Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens along with Cass County and Bowie County first responders responded. His body was not immediately found.

Amjad’s body was discovered while search teams were using sonar Sunday night. The next morning, June 20, a dive was done to retrieve his body, according to Texas Game Wardens.
