ELLSWORTH, Kan. (AP) - A 17-year-old boy has drowned while swimming at a central Kansas lake.

The sheriff’s office received a call around 3 p.m. about someone whose body had been underwater at the lake for close to 10 minutes.

Emergency responders performed CPR as Blair was taken by ambulance to Ellsworth County Medical Center, but he was pronounced dead a short time later.
