One man drowned and another was rescued at Lake Mead on Sunday afternoon, according to National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover.

The men were seen struggling in the water near Boulder Beach about 3:20 p.m., and units from the National Park Service, Nevada Department of Wildlife, Metro Police Dive Team, Boulder City Emergency Medical Services and Mercy Air were called to the lake, Vanover said.

Metro Police said the men had fallen out of a raft.
