    Authorities say a 14-year-old boy has drowned while swimming with friends in the Aroostook River in Fort Fairfield, Maine.

    The Maine Warden Service said the boy was swimming with three friends Saturday near the confluence of Hockenhull Brook when he began having trouble. One friend tried unsuccessfully to help him while the others called 911. The teen went under the water and never resurfaced.

    The boy's body was found by a game warden in 10 feet of water about 45 minutes after he disappeared. The name of the Fort Fairfield teen was not released.
