A teenager drowned in J. Percy Priest Lake Tuesday afternoon. The incident occurred near the YMCA campgrounds in Antioch. WGNS received several calls about the incident and some callers thought it occurred in the Smyrna area. It did not.
Metro police responded to the drowning because it was in Davidson County at the Smith Springs Recreation Area. Friends of the teen say he jumped in the water around 3:30 PM and never resurfaced after going under.
The body of the 16 year old victim has since been recovered.
