PEORIA, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- A teenager pulled from Lake Pleasant Friday afternoon has died.
Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spokesman, Sgt. Joaquin Enriquez said the 16-year-old boy was swimming at the lake with friends around 1:30 p.m. near the Desert Tortoise area of the lake when he began to struggle.
A friend swimming nearby tried to help the teen but the young man eventually went under the surface, said Enriquez.
Bystanders were able to pull the teen from the water and begin CPR. He was transported to Abrazo Peoria Emergency Center in serious condition, but did not survive.
Enriquez said evidence gathered at this point does not suggest any alcohol, drugs or foul play.
