Texas Teenager Drowns In Fort Supply Lake
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Texas teenager has drowned in a northwestern Oklahoma lake.
The patrol says the body of 18-year-old Mario Sebastian-Mejia of Dalhart, Texas, was recovered Sunday from Fort Supply Lake, about 140 miles (2252 kilometers) northwest of Oklahoma City.
Troopers say Sebastian-Mejia was wading outside the lake’s swimming area about 50 feet (15 meters) from the shore line when he fell off a jetty wall, went underwater and never resurfaced.
The patrol says the victim’s body was recovered in 5 feet (1.5 meters) of water and was transported to the Office of the State Medical Examiner.
