Emergency crews from Somerset and Fayette counties worked several hours Friday evening after a reported drowning in the Youghiogheny River Lake.

Details were sketchy late Friday, but a Somerset 911 dispatch supervisor said an individual fell into the lake near the dam.

The drowning occurred on the Fayette County side of the lake, which straddles the Somerset-Fayette county line.

A Fayette County 911 supervisor said a body was recovered.

"They called for the coroner," the supervisor said.
