CUMMING, GA (CBS46) -

A 59-year-old woman drowned in Lake Lanier on Sunday after apparently falling into the lake from the dock at her home.

Marines Rosa Dillon of Cumming reportedly lost her balance and fell into the water at her home on Hope Road around 6:28 p.m.

Her husband, Daniel Dillon, told police he jumped into the water to save her because she could not swim.

A neighbor heard screams from the couple and had his wife call 911 and rushed to their aid, according to police.

Dillon was transported to Northside Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Section is investigating.
