A 19-year-old drowned in Mountain Island Lake on Tuesday.

First responders had few details about the circumstances of the incident and hadn’t released the identity of the person whose body they recovered late Tuesday.

The person went into the water around 6:30 p.m.

According to WSOC-TV, authorities say a group of friends went swimming near Mountain Island Lake Road in an illegal area when the teen disappeared.
