Swimming is a fun way to beat the heat but it has to be done safely. A 15 year old boy from Oglesby is dead after investigators say he drowned while swimming in the Vermillion River near Oglesby Tuesday afternoon.
Police say Isak Penrod was swimming with two other teens near the pump house when he went under and never came back up.
His body was eventually found and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
