HYRUM, Cache County — A 14-year-old boy drowned while swimming with friends at Hyrum Reservoir on Wednesday.
The American Fork teen was swimming with friends and family on the southwest side of the reservoir when he disappeared, said Utah State Parks Lt. Eric Stucki.
Stucki said the boy went under the water and the people he was with couldn't locate him. The boy's body was recovered shortly after 9:30 p.m.
The area where the boy was swimming can range from 15 to 30 feet deep, Stucki said. He was not wearing a life jacket.
Emergency crews were called about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Dive teams and water resources from Cache County, Utah State Parks and the Utah Highway Patrol assisted with the search.
