PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - A man drowned at Lake Pueblo Monday morning after falling from a fishing boat.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife said a 68-year-old man fell from a small fishing boat. A passerby in another boat helped pull the man from the water at the west end of Lake Pueblo. A park ranger and a CPW officer met the victim at the ramp and performed CPR until an ambulance arrived, but the man died on scene.

The Pueblo County Coroner identified the victim as Pueblo resident Robert Charles Taylor. This is the fifth drowning at Lake Pueblo in 2020. In recent weeks, there were two Fort Carson soldiers that drowned at Lake Pueblo.
