BUCKHANNON, W.Va. (AP) - An 18-year-old West Virginia man’s drowning marks the second loss of a child for his parents in the past month.

State Trooper R.A. Moss says Steven Earlo Morgan of Buckhannon was swimming with friends in the Buckhannon River in Upshur County when he went under the surface Saturday.

Morgan was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Buckhannon.

The Exponent Telegram (http://bit.ly/1ZcRxXd ) reports Morgan’s 19-year-old brother, Christopher, died last month. According to his obituary, Christopher Morgan died May 2 at his home.

They are the sons of Cheryl and Rex Dotson and Earlo Morgan, all of Buckhannon.

Steven Morgan’s visitation is set for Thursday at Poling-St. Clair Funeral Home, the same funeral home that handled his brother’s arrangements.
