A 15-year-old Columbia boy drowned in Lake Wateree on Thursday afternoon. Kershaw County Coroner David West said dispatchers received a call around 1:20 p.m. that the teenage boy was in the water in a kayak with another child when it tipped over. West said the other kayaker came back to the surface, but the Columbia boy's flotation device came off of him and he did not come back to the surface.
