Divers Recover Teen Who Drowned in Eagle Lake, May be Related to “Cold Water Challenge”
CHASKA, Minn. (AP) – Divers in Carver County have recovered the body of a teenage boy who apparently drowned in Eagle Lake.
The 16-year-old disappeared Friday about 7:30 p.m. when he went underwater and never resurfaced. Divers recovered his body about 11 p.m.
His name hasn’t been released. Authorities say he was from the local area, and was he believed to have been at the lake by himself.
Friends say he may have been attempting a “cold water challenge.” That’s where teens videotape themselves jumping into icy lakes in the name of charity.
Eagle Lake is in Baylor Regional Park, a 200-acre park just north of Norwood Young America.
