BRANSON, Mo. (AP) -- A southwest Missouri teenager drowned while trying to help a friend who was struggling in Table Rock Lake.
The Missouri Water Patrol says 15-year-old Brandon Farabough of Reeds Springs died Monday afternoon.
He was swimming near a dock when his friend began struggling in the water. The water patrol says after he helped his friend onto the dock, Farabough went under water and did not resurface.
Farabough's body was later recovered by a Taney County dive team.
