A man from Mechanicville drowned near Brown’s Beach at Saratoga Lake.

The sheriff’s office responded to a call of a person in the water yelling for help, around 9:30 Thursday morning.

The sheriff’s dive team recovered the body of 44-year-old Christopher Lavigne.

The sheriff’s department says Lavigne was in the canoe alone, and it is believed he fell out of it because of windy conditions on the lake.
