Kentucky teen drowns at church outing

Posted: Updated:

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky teen has drowned while attending a church outing at Green River Lake State Park.

Coroner Terry Dabney told media that 19-year-old Jose Zambrano of Lebanon was attending a baptismal and church picnic at the park on Sunday when he went into the water to try to retrieve some floatation devices for children. He was about 50 feet from the shore when he began struggling.

Dabney said the teen was an excellent swimmer and it was unclear exactly what happened.

Crews spent hours searching the lake before finding his body at about 5 p.m.
