Drowning at Weiss Lake
Authorities say a 17-year-old teenager from Cave Spring, Georgia, has drowned at Weiss Lake in Alabama. John LeCroy died Monday. Cherokee County Coroner Dr. Jeremy Deaton says the teen was playing a water game with friends near a pier at a residence in Centre when he went under the water and never resurfaced. Paramedics found the victim underneath the pier and worked to revive him but were unsuccessful. Deaton says the body has been sent to the Alabama Department of Forensics Sciences Lab for an autopsy.
