Lowndes County - A fishing trip turns deadly for a South Georgia man.

Forty-three year old Larry Henry and his 11-year-old brother were fishing at a private pond off Highway 41 Wednesday morning. Henry was in the boat when it capsized, his brother was standing on the bank.

Investigators say Henry could swim but for some reason, he couldn't make it to land and drowned. "We don't know at this point what happened, whether the cold water got the best of him, if he tired out from fighting the water, if he had a heart attack or not, all we know is that once he went down he never surfaced again," said Captain J.D. Yeager.

Divers from the Lowndes County Sheriff's and Fire Departments worked for about two hours to recover Henry's body.
