Authorities say an Ames police officer who drowned in Geode State Park in southeast Iowa was trying to reach a boat and his daughter when went under the water. Fifty-one-year-old Sgt. Howard Snider, of Nevada, drowned on Sunday. The Ames Tribune says Snider with his family and had been on a fishing boat. The boat was pulled to a dock and most of the occupants had gotten out, but Snider's daughter was still on board when the wind pushed it away from the dock. The Henry County sheriff's office says Snider's daughter was unable to get out of the boat by herself, so Snider went into the water to get both the boat and his daughter. Officials say Snider was reportedly unable to continue swimming and drowned.
