RAYMOND, N.H. (CBS) – A 56-year-old man drowned on Saturday as he was swimming in Governor’s Lake.

At around 11 a.m., the victim, identified as M. Lee Ribblett, of Raymond, attempted to swim into the lake to retrieve his canoe that had been blown from the shoreline, according New Hampshire State Police.
