SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Two young boys drowned in a water-filled hole at the construction site of a new home, authorities said.

The nearly 6-foot-deep hole was about 100 feet behind the house, said Dorchester County sheriff's 1st Sgt. Mike Miller. The boys, between 3 and 5 years old, drowned Saturday evening. Miller said he didn't know if they were swimming in the hole or fell in.
