Texas Soldier’s Body Recovered After He Tried To Rescue Drowning Immigrants Pixabay.

A man reportedly drowned to death after he jumped into a pond to escape from police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Thursday, Oct. 27.

Tulsa police officers responded to a 4:30 a.m. burglar alarm at the Shoreline Apartments clubhouse in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Thursday, Oct. 27. When the officers arrived, they found the clubhouse's front door shattered and a naked man inside the clubhouse with his wet clothing strewn around the room, NBC News reported.

Seeing the man, the officers detained the man and handcuffed him. Even though the man was initially cooperative with the police officers, he suddenly broke from them, kicked open a back door to the clubhouse, jumped over a patio railing, and jumped into a pond.

Officers reportedly chased behind him and jumped into the pond after him. Officers tried to rescue the man in "challenging conditions." Even though the officers made a valiant effort, the suspect went under the water and did not resurface, CBS News reported.

The police dive team later recovered the man's body in about 10 feet of water.

Police officers said that they are withholding the man’s identity until they could notify his relatives. Officers added that they are in the process of locating the suspect's next of kin.

The man, who then disappeared from sight was subsequently found dead at the bottom of the Thunder Bay River, about 20 feet from shore under about 20 feet of water in Alpena on Sunday afternoon. The man's fiancée and her dog managed to escape safely out of the water.

"It's tragic that we couldn't have a more positive outcome," said Alpena Fire Chief Bill Forbush.
