Divers recovered the body of a teenage boy who slipped and fell into Bass Lake.It happened Wednesday afternoon near Road 432 and Bass Drive.

The 14-year-old boy was walking near Angel Falls when rescuers say he slipped on a rock and fell into swift moving water.

Rescuers say two adults were with the victim. Both adults jumped into the water to save the 14-year-old ... but the current was too strong.
