KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

Rescue crews pulled a 20-year-old man's body from a Kenton County lake early Monday, according to Boone County Water Rescue.

Authorities responded to a swimmer's possible drowning at Doe Run Lake off Bullock Pen Road just after 7 p.m. Sunday.

The man, identified by authorities as Brandon Stamm, was swimming with friends when he went under and never resurfaced.

“He was like ‘help, help,’ we thought he was playing around, next thing you know, you don’t see his hand or head anymore. He just goes under," said one witness, Garrett Wilson.

Stamm's body was found by sonar 60 feet from shore about 1 a.m., according to Boone County Water Rescue.

Stamm, of Erlanger, graduated from Dixie Heights High School in 2014. The school district released the following statement Monday: 

“On behalf of the Kenton County School District and Dixie Heights High School, our hearts are broken at the loss of this graduate. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family."

Foul play is not suspected.
