KUTTAWA, Ky. (AP) -- A search team has pulled the body of a woman from Lake Barkley after she went under while swimming.

The victim was 53 years old and was from Sacramento, Ky., near Owensboro.

Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources spokesman Garry Clark said the victim was swimming near Kuttawa Tuesday afternoon, using a boat cushion for floatation.

Clark said the woman's boyfriend was on the shore and saw her reaching for the cushion as it floated away. Before the boyfriend could get into his boat to go help her, the victim slipped under the surface and did not come back up.
