BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Divers have found the body of a 13-year-old boy who disappeared underwater at a private, man-made lake in a Bowling Green subdivision.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Department tells news outlets that 13-year-old Deron Mills of Florence was swimming with his cousin and brother Thursday evening when he went under.
Warren County Technical Rescue Squad spokesman Stephen Harmon says the teenager’s brother and cousin attempted to rescue him and then called 911. Divers found the boy’s body later that night inside the lake, which has a depth of 10 feet in the middle.
Authorities say none of the young men lived in the gated community.
