Bronx Teenager Drowns At Putnam County Lake

Bronx teenager Kevin Sanchez was pronounced dead at Putnam Hospital Center Monday afternoon after drowning at Kentwood Lake in the town of Kent. Sanchez and his father were guests of residents in the homeowner’s association of the lake. Reportedly, there was no lifeguard on duty at the time 18 year-old Sanchez went underwater for a while before police were called at around 4:15 p.m. and searched the area for 20 minutes. A dive team from the Mahopac Fire Department was able to locate Sanchez and transport him to get medical treatment. Authorities do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved in the tragic accident.
