LAKE EUFAULA, Okla. (AP) A 13-year-old boy has drowned while swimming with family at Lake Eufaula in McIntosh County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Dylan Shafer drowned shortly after noon Sunday at Paradise Point.

Troopers say Shafer was swimming with two cousins and his sister when the sister panicked and pushed him under the water. His body was found about 4 p.m. about 200 yards from the shore in about seven feet of water.
