A tragic incident occurred at Joe Pool Lake on Sunday, May 5th, when Grand Prairie FD responded to a possible drowning report around 5:37 p.m. A witness noted the swimmer's last known location near the swim beach area, where he failed to resurface. The Public Safety Dive Team conducted a search and rescue operation, finding a male submerged underwater.

The swimmer, identified as 24-year-old Josue Torres, was taken to Medical City Arlington, where he was later pronounced deceased. Torres had not been wearing a life vest at the time of the incident.
