A man has drowned in central Texas after being thrown from a horse. Albert Gonzalez and his 5-year-old daughter were riding a horse in a shallow area of the lake near the shore of Nolan Lake. It is believed the horse encountered a sudden drop off and panicked. Investigators say Gonzalez managed to push his daughter to safety, however he was unable to make it to shore.

Military emergency personnel responded to the accident. His body was recovered Sunday night.
