Man drowns in Wayne county pond


GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a man has drowned in a
private pond in Wayne County.

Officials are releasing few details about Saturday's death at
Busco Beach near Goldsboro, but Busco Beach owner Jack Bennett said
the victim was a camper at his private park.

Bennett says the victim swam to an island in one of his ponds
with two other people. On the way back, the man began to struggle,
but told his friends he was fine. But when they got to land, he was
nowhere to be found.

Bennett says there is no lifeguard at the pond and people are
advised to swim at their own risk.
