Body Of Falls Lake Drowning Victim Recovered

Around noon today, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office’s (WCSO) Marine Team, with assistance from divers, recovered the body of a teenager in Falls Lake.

The drowning victim has been identified as 17-year-old Davion Davis of Raleigh.

First responders responded to the scene last evening after witnesses say Davis, who was swimming with friends, suddenly went underwater and never returned to the surface.

Despite being hampered by low visibility due to nightfall and unstable weather conditions, the WCSO Marine Team continued to search for the victim with sonar equipment.

The drowning has been ruled an accident.
