A man who drowned Friday afternoon in the San Marcos River has been identified as Tam Minh Tran, a 24-year-old student at Texas State University.
Witnesses said Tran was swimming in the river at Sewell Park on the Texas State campus when he disappeared from sight. Minutes later, an on-looker saw him on the bottom of the river in water approximately 10 to 12 feet deep. He entered the river and pulled Tran from the water, but efforts to revive Tran were unsuccessful.
Tran was transported by EMS to Central Texas Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 4 p.m.
Tran was a junior at Texas State and was majoring in mathematics with a minor in computer science. He was a resident of the Comanche Hills Apartments. He enrolled at Texas State in the Fall 2008 semester after transferring from Galveston College. He was a graduate of Ball High School in Galveston.
