Near drowning averted at Kendall Lake
Placeholder Image
One day before an Elgin homeowner found 15-year-old Daven Williams dead in their swimming pool, a Camden man was transported -- alive -- to the hospital after nearly drowning in Kendall Lake. Camden Police Department (CPD) Chief Joe Floyd said the 35-year-old man had to be taken to the hospital after he tried to rescue his fiancé’s flotation device. Floyd said the woman slipped off a flotation device which then drifted away from her.
