Body of 60-year-old man recovered from Coweta County reservoir

A man’s body was pulled out of a Coweta County reservoir Thursday afternoon, officials said.

Game wardens with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources were called to the B.T. Brown Reservoir, a 300-acre body of water near the northeast corner of the county, at about 2:30 p.m. due to a possible boating incident. Agency spokesman Mark McKinnon said a man fell out of a kayak and did not resurface.

Officials began searching the area with sonar equipment and found the body in about 11 feet of water at about 4 p.m., McKinnon said. The man, identified as 60-year-old Joel Holloway, was recovered by game wardens and the Coweta County fire department.

Authorities have not said how he fell out of his kayak.
