Kayaker drowns during outing on Trinity River

Jason Snook, a friend of Reed's who was kayaking with him, says a fence that separates the area was likely underwater, and they didn't see any signs that warned of the danger.

Lorance says water was being released from the dam to prevent the lake from overflowing from recent rains.

Three or four members of the party were taken to area hospitals for treatment of scrapes, abrasions and hypothermia before being released, Lorance said. Read more here:

29-year-old Joshua Reed was on a kayaking outing with five other people on Trinity River, when they mistakenly entered a restricted area near an Eagle Mountain Lake dam at about 7:00 p.m. To prevent overflowing from recent excessive rain, discharge water was being released through the dam, and the kayakers were swept up in it. All of the kayaks overturned, but everyone other than Reed managed to get out of the dangerous river. His body was found dead the next day.
