ALTUS, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a 15-year-old Texas boy drowned Monday night while swimming in Greer County.

Authorities said Byron Hill of Grand Prairie, Texas, was swimming in an area of Lake Altus-Lugert that wasn't designated for swimming. The teen was about 10 to 15 feet off shore when he went under.

Another swimmer pulled him to the surface but emergency crews were unable to resuscitate the boy. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
