GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A high school student’s body was pulled from a lake Friday afternoon and officers are warning people to stay away from private areas.
- They say one student went into the water and a diver from the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office pulled him out
- It happened at a lake near Page High School
- Officials warn people to stay away from private lakes
The Greensboro Fire Department says the call came in just before 1 p.m. Friday about a person in Buffalo Lake, which is across from Page High School.
"Please stay away from any private lake. This is a private lake with posted signs all over it: 'no trespassing.' The reason that we have a lot of emergencies at these private lakes is because there's no supervision, and a lot of times something happens and it's a lengthy amount of time before public servants are notified," Deputy Chief Dwayne Church with the Greensboro Fire Department said.
They say one student went into the water and a diver from the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office pulled him out at around 2:10 p.m. He was transported to the hospital and later died.
“Our hearts are heavy with grief for the family and friends of our student, and I know our entire Page High community will join us in wrapping our arms in support around the family, our students, and staff,” Prinicipal Erik Naglee said in a released statement.
The student's name has not yet been released.
