A young man who was rushed to the hospital Saturday after he was rescued from the water at Havens Gardens in Washington died four days later.

Washington police, fire and EMS crews responded to the Havens Gardens boat ramp Saturday afternoon.

Police tell WITN News 19-year-old Jacob Hall was taking part in a church group event at Havens Gardens when he and two others went swimming.

Police say the three young men were jumping off the boat docks and swimming when Hall went under and didn't come up.

Multiple people jumped in the water and began searching for Hall. Police say Hall was found a few minutes later.

Hall's obituary states he passed away Wednesday at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Police indicated Hall was part of a visiting church group from near Fayetteville, but the obituary lists his address as Washington.
