Body found in Lake Waccamaw, crews search for third teen

READ MORE: Crews search Lake Waccamaw for missing teens
Search crews in Lake Waccamaw are still trying to find the body of a second teen who fell into the 47-degree water two days ago. It's a painstaking process. Three East Columbus High School teens were in a paddle boat Wednesday when it tipped because of high winds and rough water. Friday search crews continued to look for the body of William mills. Lake Waccamaw Fire Chief Eddy Morgan says Mills and another teen, Glen Marvin, started swimming in the wrong direction when the boat capsized. The only survivor of the accident, Scott Collins, tried to tell his friends they were going the wrong way, and that they should make buoys out of their clothing. Marvin's body was found Thursday around noon, near where the paddle boat flipped over. Friday crews brought cadaver dogs out on the lake to help search, the weather compared to yesterday also made searching a bit easier. Morgan said, "The weather has helped a lot, the buoys stay in one place instead of moving, it's clearer, they've been able to see a lot more from the air as well." Morgan thinks mills body may be in the same area where Marvin's body was found, which was about a mile from shore, because the two boys were most likely trying to swim in together. Morgan said search teams will continue looking for mills until he is found. All three boys attended East Columbus High School. The sole survivor, Scott Collins was back in class Friday. But as you might imagine, he's going through a tough time.

why not bearte them? as an

why not bearte them? as an Atheist myself, I get berated ona daily basis by the religious right. All I am saying is face reality, it is a sad thing that happened but don't present false hope by saying that god will get them through it. Only friends and family can help them through this difficult time

Well, Sad, that isn't for

Well, Sad, that isn't for you or I to decide how someone else is meant to cope with their losses, is it? So get over your persecution complex and let them grieve or support as they wish without being a negative-nelly.

SAD- REPLY

YOU ARE RIGHT IT IS SAD NOT BELIEVING IN GOD, AND NOT KNOWING GOD IS SADDER! I WILL STILL PRAY FOR YOU, GOD MADE ATHEIST TOO. I DON'T INTEND TO ARGUE OVER GOD OR HIS LOVE, I WILL JUST PRAY THAT YOU FIND HIM BEFORE EVERLASTING TOO LATE.

How about we meet where we

How about we meet where we all agree; that this is a tragedy,regardless of our religion or the lack there of, sympathize with the families and friends of the people involved? That seems far more appropriate than beating each other over the head for personal differences, doesn't it? I'll start: To the families and friends of these young men, you have my deepest and most sincere sympathies.
