Memorial Day Tragedy. Teen Drowns on Hollywood Beach
A 15 year old boy drowned
after being pulled into a strong current
while swimming with his family on Hollywood beach. After nearly 3 hours of searching, the boy's body was found by a diver at John U. Lloyd State Park
. While it was reported the boy had a faint pulse when he was found, he was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Remember to swim only where lifeguards are on duty and mind the warning flags. Red flags mean strong currents - if you go in the water stay VERY close to shore!
update: The boy has been identified as James Jamal Clark
