    Just confirmed, it was a 21 year old. Out to far and did not know how to swim. Prayers sent to his family!

    GALVESTON, TX (KTRK) -- A search is underway for a missing swimmer believed to have drowned on Galveston's beach.

    According to the Galveston Beach Patrol, around 1:15pm, a group of young people -- three women and one man -- from the Houston area were out in the water off the seawall near 45th Street. The life guard thought the swimmers were a little far out, although they were still within the legal swimming limits.

    The life guard had entered the water to warn the swimmers when they began to struggle and yelled for help. A bystander witnessed the scene and was able to rescue two victims while the life guard saved one. The witness says the 21-year-old male victim was spotted face down, though no one actually saw him go under.

    The Coast Guard assisted with the rescue effort with a boat and helicopter.

    The beach patrol says they are now conducting the situation as a drowning victim recovery effort.

    It's in the report... 21 year old man was reported face down in the water other 3 (all female) were rescued 2 of which by a by stander & 1 was rescued by the lifeguard. You'd think the lifeguard would have taken the 2 & the by stander would have just got one...

    It's unfortunate but the body will be hopefully washed up on shore down current. Let's just pray that he is recovered safe if he in deed as passed already let's just pray that they recover the body for the family.
