BULL SHOALS, Ark. (AP) – Authorities in northern Arkansas say an 18-year-old Oklahoma man has drowned in Bull Shoals Lake.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says William Carver of Miami, Oklahoma, drowned Friday after jumping off a cliff near the Brown’s Beach area, about 150 miles north of Little Rock.

The sheriff’s office says Carver was visiting the area and had been boating with friends. Divers recovered his body less than an hour after the incident was reported.

Carver was among three people who died in the Bull Shoals Lake area over the weekend. Two Harrison teens were killed Sunday when the bluff on which they were standing collapsed.
