TN High school rocked by 3 suicides loses another to drowning

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities have recovered the body of a teenager who drowned in a Tennessee lake the same day community members gathered to remember three fellow high schoolers who died earlier in the year.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/2qA3mwu ) 18-year-old Farragut High School senior Joshua Armon Davis drowned in Fort Loudoun Lake when he fell from a ski boat Wednesday afternoon.

Knoxville Volunteer Emergency Rescue Squad Deputy Chief John Whited says the team and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency recovered Davis' body around 9 p.m. Witnesses told rescuers Davis was holding personal flotation device when he fell into the water, went under and never resurfaced.

During the search, Concord United Methodist Church held a service for the Farragut high community after the suicides of two sophomores and one senior this year.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.

    CVS to end airbrushing in ads for its beauty products

    In the worlds of fashion, beauty and advertising, models are routinely tweaked and trimmed in photos. But critics of the practice say it promotes unrealistic ideas about body image. So CVS, the nation's largest drugstore chain, announced Monday that it will stop "materially" retouching models in ads for its store-brand beauty products by 2020.
