(CBS Charlotte) — Police and fire crews were dispatched to Carrigan Farms in Iredell County this afternoon, amid reports of a drowning.

Five people were believed to be swimming in a quarry when a teenage boy went under water — and did not resurface.

Nearly an hour and a half after emergency crews were dispatched, rescuers recovered the body of the teen — 25 feet below the surface.

The teen has been identified as 19-year-old Ryan Hayes. Hayes was a student at N.C. State University. It is not immediately clear what caused the drowning.
