Teen drowns at popular swimming hole in Saline County, Arkansas


See THV11

A fun day in the water with friends turned deadly for a Saline County teenager. It’s the second drowning involving a teen this week in Arkansas.

Authorities said 18-year old Michael Ryan Baker was swimming when he went underwater and never re-surfaced.

As the days grow hotter, so does the popularity of cooling off in the Saline River. For Benton resident Joey Stone it’s an opportunity he says to spend quality time with his daughter.

“Tons and tons of people come here.”
