GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – A North Carolina high school student has drowned in a lake across the street from his school.
    
Assistant Chief Dwayne Church of the Greensboro Fire Department tells news outlets that three students were swimming Friday afternoon in a lake near Page High School. They were jumping off one of the docks when one male student went missing in the water.
    
More than an hour later, a dive team found him and pulled him from the water. First responders performed life-saving efforts, but the student was pronounced dead.
    
Officials have not released the student’s name or age.
    
The lake is private property, with a sign saying that swimming and boating are prohibited. The names of the students have not been released.
