MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The body of a swimmer was pulled Wednesday evening from Lake Mendota near the UW-Madison campus.

Authorities said three people went for a swim near a campus boat house, and one of them went under. Bystanders on the shore were asked to help search for the swimmer, and rescuers were called around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Dane County sheriff’s divers used sonar equipment to help with the search. Madison firefighters said they had trouble searching due to heavy weeds in the water.

Officials said a body was discovered around 7 p.m.. It was not immediately known whether the victim was a UW student.
