SPRINGVALE (WGME) – A man has died in an apparent drowning in York County.

Sanford Parks and Recreation Director Alan Grady says the swimmer was not in an area protected by lifeguards. Grady says the man was farther down the Mousam River at Holdsworth Park off Route 109 in Springvale.

Campers in the park heard cries for help from others in the water. CBS 13 spoke to a man that says he tried to save the man in the water. He says by the time he reached him in the river, it was too late.

"He was just floating in the river,” David Schwarz said. “So I dove out. I tried to save him, he was just floating at the time."

The victim's name and age have not been released.
