A teen, who was dragged into a canal by another teen passed away on Thursday evening.

The incident occurred in Donna at a canal off of Business 83 and Val Verde road on Tuesday after three teens skipped school that day. It is reported that one of the teens actually jumped into the canal, but had pulled a second teen in with her. The strong current quickly swept both teens underwater and nearby residents came to the rescue and were able to pull out the teens. The one teen that jumped in suffered only minor injuries and police continue to investigate what charges could be filed.
