HASTINGS, N.Y. — A man drowned in an upstate New York lake after his keys fell into the water and he tried to retrieve them, police said.

Davis went into the water to try to get his keys but was unable to get back to land, Bucher said. One of the other men, Wattie Cappers, 42, went after Davis but was also unable to make it to land.

Personnel from several local police and fire departments arrived and attempted to rescue the two men, Bucher said.
