NEWBERRY, SC (AP) - An 18-year-old man has drowned in a private pool in Newberry County.
 
Authorities said LaQuan Parker Jr. was swimming with several friends Tuesday evening when they noticed he was unconscious in the pool.
 
Sheriff Lee Foster says a neighbor started doing CPR and paramedics and emergency room personnel were able to get Parker breathing again. But he died a short time after being moved to a hospital in Greenville.
 
Authorities say Parker was a 2013 graduate of Mid-Carolina High School and would have turned 19 on Thursday.
