A 19-year-old man has drowned in Cave Run Lake.

Authorities have identified him as Luis Avendano of Mexico. He moved to Frankfort one month ago to live with extended family and just started working.

Avendano had just celebrated his birthday.

Emergency crews responded to the Twin Knobs Campground off KY 801 on Thursday afternoon. The man was swimming at the beach when he went underwater.
