A 22-year-old man died at Bear Lake on Saturday, possibly from heat stroke, according to a Rich County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Dispatchers got a 911 call about 7:13 p.m. and sent state park officers and a medical helicopter to aid the man, who was on a boat. When responders arrived, they took over CPR efforts being performed on the man, according to the release.
