A Genesee County, N.Y., man drowned while swimming in a quarry pit in Orleans County. Brett Moak, 22, was apparently swimming with a friend at the Hulberton Stone Quarry in Murray. Moak used a rope hanging on the north bank to swing out over the water. His friend reported that he jumped off the rope, landed in the water in an awkward position and failed to surface.
