A Yuba County dive team has recovered the body of a man who reportedly drowned in Collins Lake last week.

According to the Yuba County Sheriff's Office, the body of 66-year-old Robert Martinez, of Olivehurst, was pulled the lake Sunday.

Investigators say Martinez jumped from a boat and struggled to stay above water before drowning last week. Witnesses tried to help Martinez, but were too late.
