HARVEST, Ala. – Authorities confirm that 51-year-old Timothy Wilson of Toney died Sunday afternoon as the result of a drowning.

Emergency crews were called out to a pond off Burnwell Road in Harvest around 5 p.m.

Madison County Deputy Coroner Tyler Berryhill said two people were on a small boat in the middle of a pond working on a piece of equipment when the boat began to fill up with water.

The two individuals aboard jumped out of the boat to try to get to safety. Only one of the individuals was able to make it to land.

A witness jumped into the pond to try to help save Wilson but was unable to.

Emergency crews were able to locate his body an hour and a half after the incident.
