Ross Lehmberg, 26, dies after diving from deck near Houston

A San Antonio man is dead after an apparent accident aboard a party boat on Lake Conroe, north of Houston.

Montgomery County authorities said 26-year-old Ross Lehmberg died after he tried to jump off the top deck of a party boat Saturday night.

Witnesses said Lehmberg was jumping from the boat "just for fun" when he hit the bottom deck and fell into the water.

Several people went in after him, but were unable to save him.

Lehmberg's body was found just after midnight. Deputies are investigating and an autopsy is pending.
