The 16-year-old who got stuck underwater at a local campground has died. The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office gave an update on the incident at Sulphur Springs Campground Monday. They have not publicly identified the boy.

Witnesses say the teen went underwater to retrieve a bracelet and got stuck under a dock last Friday. He was under water for several minutes before other campers could pull him to the surface.

Sulphur Springs Campground is on U.S. 68 between Arlington and Williamstown in southern Hancock County.
