A 21-year old Suwanee man has drowned in Lake Lanier, just as the Labor Day weekend got underway.
Mark McKinnon, Public Affairs Officer with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, has identified the victim as Bailey Dean O'Shields of Suwanee.
Gwinnett County Fire Captain Tommy Rutledge said firefigthers got a report just before 7:00 Friday evening about a unmanned jet ski circling in the water at East Bank Park in Buford.
Dive teams from Gwinnett County and from Hall County Fire Services Marine Rescue Team responded and found O'Shields about 40-feet off the boat ramp.
It is unclear why he was not wearing his life jacket, which was with the jet ski, or if he had suffered some sort of medical emergency that caused him to go into the water.
Rutledge said O'Shields is a college student in Florida, who had come home to Suwanee for the holiday weekend.
Further information about the drowning will be released at a later time by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources once their investigation is completed.
