Marmaduke teen drowns in pond near city limits

MARMADUKE, AR  (KAIT) - A 17-year-old high school student drowned in a small pond southwest of Marmaduke city limits on Greene County Road 522, according to Greene County Sheriff Dan Langston.

Langston told Region 8 News Trevor Potter was swimming with a friend in the middle of the pond Thursday night when Potter started having chest pains. Potter's friend tried to keep him a float, but was unable to.

Potter was under the water for about 30 minutes, Langston said.

Langston said Potter was a student at the Marmaduke High School. His body may be taken to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy.

No foul play is suspected at this time, according to Langston.
