Two Boys Drown in DeKalb County Pond

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say two brothers drowned in a Stone Mountain pond after one apparently tried to save the other.

Greg Johns, an investigator with the DeKalb County Medical Examiner's Office, says the two boys were 14 and 11.

Johns says a group of children were playing Sunday afternoon and one tossed a can into the water. Johns says the younger boy went after it and when he didn't come up from the water, the older boy tried to rescue him.

DeKalb County Fire and Rescue spokesman Eric Jackson says the boys' bodies were found about 10 feet from the shore. Authorities have not released their names.
