MAYFLOWER, AR - The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office says a 28-year-old man drowned while swimming in a rock quarry in the Gold Creek area near Mayflower.

According to the sheriff's office, the man was swimming with his girlfriend’s three sons when they decided to swim across the quarry. However, when the man got half way he decided to turn back.

The boys saw he was struggling and two of them tried to help him but he sank under the water, according to the sheriff's office. The boys then ran home and called 911.

The body was recovered but the name of the man has not been released. Authorities say they are having trouble finding next of kin because the man was from Guatemala.
