Teen's Body Found In Ohio River

Rescue crews found the body of a western Kentucky teenager who disappeared while swimming in the Ohio River earlier this week.

Crews pulled the body of 14-year-old Brenton Hooper out of the water early Saturday morning.

Brenton was wading in the river Tuesday night near the Paducah river walk when he was swept away in the current. His friends say it happened so fast that they could only grab on to his shirt for a minute before he disappeared.

No word on funeral arrangements for the boy.
