Man dies following possible medical emergency on Lake Conroe

A Conroe man died Tuesday after potentially suffering a medical emergency in shallow water of Lake Conroe, authorities said.

Arthur Ingle was pronounced dead around 5:15 p.m., roughly an hour after someone called 911 to report a possible drowning near the Scott’s Ridge Boat Ramp, according to Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable Philip Cash. Friends attempted life-saving measures. 

"This is the first tragedy on Lake Conroe this summer season and everyone who visits Lake Conroe should remember to utilize life safety equipment whenever you are on a  boat or in the water," Cash's office said in a statement. "Due to the high temperatures forecasted for this summer, make sure you have plenty of water and know the signs for heat stroke and exhaustion."

An autopsy will be performed.
