A 16-year-old teenager drowned while swimming with friends at a popular rock quarry hangout in Pittsylvania Co., Va. The Danville Life Saving Crew's dive team pulled the teen's body from the murky water, and said that most calls they respond to are located at farm ponds and quarries in the county. Two of the divers became entangled with unknown debris while searching for the boy's body. (Source: Danville Register & Bee)
