A man drowned Thursday afternoon while swimming on Clearwater Lake in eastern Crow Wing County, Sheriff Todd Dahl reported.

The man was first reported missing about 1:40 p.m. Dahl said the man was with other people on a pontoon and that several people went swimming off the pontoon in the lake.

"Everybody else was trying to get back on the boat, they turned around and he didn't come back," Dahl said.
