Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said Monday evening that drowning has been ruled as the cause of death of a 16-year-old Aiken boy who died during a family trip Sunday evening to Langley Pond.

Da'than S. Harris had entered the water about 8 p.m. and began to struggle. An unidentified passerby attempted to assist him, but was unsuccessful.

His body was recovered late Sunday by several area dive teams, according to the coroner. Carlton said it was unclear whether the teen could swim.
