A 22-year-old former college swimmer drowned during lifeguard tryouts near Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Saturday night, according to authorities.
A graduate of the State University of New York-Cortland, Jack Jakubek was participating in a fitness test for lifeguards at Pilgrim Lake in Orleans, Massachusetts, when he went missing just before 9 a.m., according to the Orleans Fire-Rescue Department. He went under water while trying to swim to a buoy, ABC News Boston affiliate WCVB-TV reported.
Several rescue teams responded to the scene, including a dive team, Massachusetts State Police and the United States Coast Guard. Jakubet was found off shore by divers at 9:23 a.m., and efforts to resuscitate him failed as he was brought back to shore by boat, the fire department said.
Jakubek was pronounced dead at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis. The Cape and Islands District Attorney's Office is investigating his death, according to the fire department. He had just graduated from SUNY Cortland two weeks before his death, WCVB reported

It's haunting see peoples last posts on social media after they pass. He was very handsome indeed. Strange how he drowned but was an experienced swimmer.
