A weekend swimming trip turned tragic in north suburban Antioch when a man drowned.

Lake County officials say the man in his 20s was boating with others on Lake Marie Saturday afternoon when some people in the group went for a swim.

When the man did not surface, others on the boat called 911.

The Antioch Fire Department used side scan sonar to locate the man.

Emergency crews later recovered his body.
