Rescuers Looking For Missing Swimmers At NC Lake

Rescue workers are searching Lake Norman in North Carolina for two people who went under while swimming off a boat and did not resurface.

Mecklenburg EMS deputy director Jeff Keith said in a news release that four people had gone in swimming off the boat Sunday in a main channel of the lake northwest of Charlotte.

The Charlotte Observer reported that scanner traffic indicated the missing were a teenager and a younger child. Officials would not confirm their ages.
