A central Kentucky teen dies after drowning in a southern Kentucky river.
18 year old Bryce Hood had just graduated from West Jessamine High School last spring. Authorities say Hood accidentally drowned Saturday while vacationing in McCreary County with a friend's family at the South Big Fork River. The group was swimming when Hood disappeared. Investigators say his body was recovered around 6:30 about 300 yards from where he had been swimming.
Hood was known by many as being involved in local theater productions and workshops conducted by the Kentucky Classical Theatre Conservatory. Today, friends got together to remember him. The director of KCTC says Hood was a great dancer and would have had a future in acting.
