Teen Drowns at Lake Lowell
So sad. A 19-year-old is dead this morning after drowning at Lake Lowell. Here's what happened.
Just after 8 o'clock last night, a man went off the dock, only 6 feet out when he went under the water for unknown reasons.
According to KTVB, a bystander jumped into the water and tried to find the man and save him, but he was unable to locate the man.
It took marine deputies with a boat and sonar to locate the young man and although they tried to perform CPR on him he was not responsive and died at the scene.
His identity has not been released pending notification to the family.
Who knows what caused this young man to end up in the water and ultimately drown. An investigation will continue. It's unknown if the man was unable to swim or what caused him to drown.
Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers and let this accident serve as a reminder to please be careful around water this summer.
