ROLLA (KMOV.com) -

Kalon Green, 18, of Belleville drowned at Fugitive Beach in Rolla Saturday afternoon, police say.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Green was on a water slide with his sister and after they both went into the water, he didn’t come back up to the surface.

Lifeguards noticed the situation and started to search. They found him in about a minute and took him to the beach to perform CPR. Unfortunately, they could not revive him.

Green was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

This is the second drowning at the site in the last three years. 6-year-old Noah Cook of Fenton drowned at Fugitive Beach in 2014. He was not wearing a life jacket. 

After Cook's death, the swimming area changed their rules, saying all children under the age of 10 are required to wear a life jacket in or near the water.

This is the 20th drowning in Missouri this year. 

Green's family said they plan to hire an attorney.
