NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 17-year-old boy has died hours after he was pulled from Lake Thunderbird in Cleveland County.
The patrol says crews responded to a report of a near drowning on Sunday afternoon in the Party Cove area of the lake. According to a preliminary report, the teen was swimming about 50 feet from the shoreline in water that was about 6 feet deep. The teen went below the water and didn't resurface.
Authorities say witnesses pulled the teen from the water and began performing CPR.
The boy, who was from Yukon, was pronounced dead Monday morning at Children's Hospital. His name has not yet been released.
