WASHINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Rescuers have found a man who disappeared during a backyard cookout at the bottom of a 12-foot deep pool.

Pitt County deputies told media outlets that paramedics could not resuscitate Ronald Wilson Jr. after he was found at a home near Washington around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Authorities say several people were swimming in the pool when Wilson disappeared and a quick search didn’t find him, so partygoers called 911.

Deputies are investigating the death since no one saw the teen go under the water.
