    Authorities in Southeast Texas say a 26-year-old man has died after he tried to jump off the top deck of a party boat.

    The College Station man was found dead just after midnight Saturday in Lake Conroe.

    Montgomery County constables say witnesses saw the man try to jump from the party boat "Just for Fun," hit the bottom deck and fall into the water. Several people on the boat went into the water, but were unable to save him.

    Authorities have not released the man's name.

    An autopsy is pending.
