Around 5:20 p.m., officials received a 911 call about a young man drowning near a Vicksburg County Park. The mayor’s office said he was swimming with his family when he started struggling and went underwater. Paramedics searched for about two hours before finding him. They tried to revive him before he was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
