A man has drowned on Cross Lake after saving two children.

Four adults and three youngsters were out on the lake in a boat Saturday afternoon. The children were swimming when two of them began to struggle. The man jumped in the water to save the children, but he began to have trouble.

He managed to get the kids back on the boat before he went under. He was never seen again.

A homeowner near the lake called 911 and several units responded to try to find the man. The search was called off after several hours of searching, but crews will be back on the water Sunday morning.
