GRAFTON -- A Grafton man is dead after drowning in the waters of Tygart Lake early Tuesday afternoon, said Taylor County Sheriff Clark Sinclair.

Gabriel F. Kearns, 20, had been swimming with friends, said Sinclair.

Divers from Barbour County and Grafton pulled Kearns' body from the water, said DNR Officer John Gonzales.
