A man rescued from Branched Oak Lake northwest of Lincoln Sunday afternoon has died.

Sixty-year-old James Lee of Greenwood was taken off life support at a Lincoln hospital on Wednesday.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says Lee wasn't wearing a life jacket when he went to retrieve his boat, which had drifted away from the shore. He was found face down in the water. Bystanders worked to revive him before medics arrived.
