13-Year-Old Boy Drowns in Lake Wawasee

The boy was found in the water by his father just before midnight Saturday. First responders tried to revive him, but were unsuccessful.

KOSCIUSKO CO., Ind -- Indiana conservation officers are investigating the death of a 13-year-old boy whose body was found late Saturday night in Lake Wawasee.

Conservation officers say the boy's mother went to check on him after he went to bed at their Syracuse home and found his bedroom empty.

Unable to find her son, the woman asked her husband for help. She searched inside the house, while he walked around the grounds. After searching for about half an hour, the man found his son floating in the water near the family's pier.

First responders arrived and gave the boy CPR, but their attempts to revive the teen were unsuccessful.

The boy's name and his exact cause of death have not been released.
