MONTE NE, Ark. (AP) — Benton County authorities say a 39-year-old Rogers woman has drowned in Beaver Lake while saving her sons from the water near Monte Ne.
Sheriff's Sgt. Dale Denver told the Rogers Morning News that the body of Kimberlee Weaber was found about noon Saturday in about five feet of water.
Denver said Weaber had swum to her 10- and 12-year-old sons about 30 to 40 feet offshore and helped save them before disappearing under the water.
The two children were taken to a Rogers hospital for treatment. Their conditions were not released.
