Six Teens Drown! No One Knew How to Swim
Six teenagers from at least two families drowned in the Red River in northwest Louisiana after they stepped off a ledge from shallow water into a chasm about 20 feet deep on Monday. A 14-year-old was rescued.

Authorities say the parents could only watch helplessly on the river bank because none of the adults could swim either.
