18-year-old drowns in Lake Cumberland

Posted: Updated:

LAKE CUMBERLAND, KY (WAVE) – An 18-year-old drowned over the weekend at Lake Cumberland.

The Pulaski County Rescue Squad recovered the body of Tobias Napier of Somerset. Napier’s friends say he didn’t plan on swimming because he didn’t know how to. Officials say he slipped off a ledge, fell into the water and never re-surfaced.

“People said it was his time to go. He’s too young to go like that,” said Joshua Duncan, Napier’s brother. “I don’t think it was his time. He’s just too good of a kid. I love him more than life itself.”

Public safety officials say the teens at the drowning scene were wearing life jackets.
