Posted by: John Shryock - bio | email

AUBURN, AL (WSFA) - Divers have recovered the body of an 18-year-old man who accidentally drowned on Lake Harding Sunday evening.

Beulah resident Deontay Farrow's body was located in about 15 feet of water Monday morning. It was found  in the same area where he disappeared Sunday evening. 

Authorities received a 911 drowning call around 5:30pm Sunday from the Valley Park recreation area on Lake Harding. That's located off Lee Road 787.  

Farrow and friends were reportedly swimming when he and his girlfriend attempted to swim across the slough. The victim began having trouble about half way, and his girlfriend attempted to help him but was unable to do so. 

No autopsy is planned and his body was released to Harris Funeral Home in Opelika.

Foul play is not suspected and the incident is being treated as an accidental drowning, though it remains under investigation by the Lee County Sheriff's department and the Lee County Coroner's office.
