OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities say a 14-year-old teenage boy has drowned in a northeastern Oklahoma City creek.
Deputy Fire Chief Marc Woodard says the teen was found Sunday evening and pronounced dead soon after. He says authorities received a report that the teen had been swimming in the creek and had been underwater for about 10 minutes.
They have not released his name.
A city spokesperson tells KFOR-TV a family friend was watching the teen.
The state medical examiner will perform an autopsy.
