He was identified Saturday afternoon as Bruce Lee Hild of Winterville. Though he drowned, Hild’s death has been classified as a boating fatality since he jumped from a moving vessel, McKinnon said.
The second drowning occurred about 12:30 p.m. Saturday. Game wardens responded to Lanier Park near Buford after a 45-year-old man disappeared while swimming at the beach, officials said. His body was eventually recovered by another swimmer.
