Body Of 14-Year-Old Boy Pulled From Creve Coeur Lake

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (AP) — The body of a 14-year-old boy has been pulled from Creve Coeur Lake in suburban St. Louis, authorities there said.

A Maryland Heights Fire Protection District search and rescue team found the boy’s body around 8 p.m. Thursday, about an hour after he went under the water and failed to resurface. Officials said the boy was not wearing a life jacket. Authorities did not immediately release the teen’s name.

The boy's death marks at least a dozen water-related deaths in Missouri this month.

Creve Coeur Lake is about 20 miles (32.2 kilometers) northwest of St. Louis.
