charlestown@herald-mail.com Despite attempts by three friends to rescue him, a 15-year-old boy drowned while swimming in the Shenandoah River Tuesday afternoon, rescue officials said. Officials declined to release the boy's name Tuesday night because not all family members had been notified. The teenager and his friends were swimming in water about 5 feet deep, said Steve Anderson, one of three divers who searched for the boy. It appears the youth was walking in the river when he fell into a section of water that was about 10-feet deep, Anderson said.
