A man died on the Choctaw Reservation after jumping into a community pond and not resurfacing.

Choctaw police and emergency personnel responded to the call Monday afternoon about a possible drowning.

A witness says the man entered the water but did not return to the surface and was underwater more than two minutes when 911 was called.

An officer with the Choctaw Police Department recovered the victim from the water, but he was unresponsive. The name of the person who drowned is not being released. An autopsy will be conducted.
