15-year-old Camden High student dies in boating accident on Wateree River, Kershaw County

Authorities have verified that a teenager from Kershaw County died in a boating accident on the Wateree River.

David West, the coroner for Kershaw County, stated that the collision occurred at 10:15 p.m. and involved two vessels. West stated that the individuals on both vessels were companions who were brush fishing at the time.

West stated that both vessels were in motion when one collided with the other near Pine Tree Creek, resulting in the death of a 15-year-old Camden High School student. West did not disclose the victim’s identity because he was a minor.

There is no suspicion of foul play, according to West, and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday in Newberry County. He added that the Department of Natural Resources of South Carolina is conducting the investigation.
