HOUSTON The Houston police dive team was called to a park in east Houston after a witness reported someone in trouble in the water.

It happened Tuesday afternoon in Greens Bayou Park located in the 700 block of Westmont.

According to family members, three people decided to come down to the bayou to read a book. A man in the group decided to go into the water and then tried to entice the women to come in as well, but they refused. He was floating on his back when they lost sight of him.

Family members gathered at the scene waiting for information as the dive team searched.

A cousin of the man said she was not sure if the man knew how to swim.
