A man drowned in the North Canadian River Saturday night.
Fire officials told sister station KOCO that a 40-year-old man had been swimming in the river near the 5100 block of North Midwest Boulevard around 7:00 p.m. when he went under and did not resurface.
According to authorities, a large group of people were swimming in the river when the victim tried to cross the water.
Divers were called in, and the victim's body was recovered shortly after 8:00 p.m.
The man's name has not yet been released.
The North Canadian River is a tributary of the Canadian River—the longest tributary of the Arkansas River, which starts in Colorado and travels through New Mexico, the Texas panhandle, and most of Oklahoma.
