Teen Drowns While Swimming In Licking River

Firefighters received a call around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon that a 15 year old boy swimming in the Licking River went under, and didn't come back up.
A friend tried to help, but couldn't save the teen. It took emergency crews three hours to recover his body. It was found just 15 feet from where he went under. Investigators believe an under current in the river may have pulled the boy under.
