CROSS COUNTY, AR -- A 16-year-old boy drowned Monday afternoon after swimming with friends in a Cross County residential pond.
Logan Boeckmann, of Wynne, was swimming with his brother, when he apparently began to struggle and submerged under water. The boys were working with friends to build a dock off the pond when they decided to take an afternoon swim.
"They were going to swim out to the middle of the lake. They've got a dock thing out there where they climb out there and swim and dive off of and the young man and his brother started swimming toward it and never made it. He went under a couple of times and came back up and the last time he went under, he didn't surface," says Ronnie Baldwin, the Cross County Sheriff.
