WILTON (WGME) -- A Farmington man dies after diving into Wilson Lake.

Jeffrey Mitchell, 63, jumped off a pontoon boat Tuesday.

Wardens say he was struggling when he surfaced and was pulled out of the water by a friend and two kayakers.

Wardens say the boat had life jackets but that Mitchell wasn't wearing one when he decided to go swimming late Tuesday afternoon.

Mitchell was the president of a local real estate agency.

The incident remains under investigation.Man drowns in Wilson Lake after he dove off a boat
