Posted June 9, 2000

— Officials believe a weekend drowning at a Chatham County lake was accidental.

State parks officials say four-year-old Kevin Mason, of Fuquay-Varina, died Saturday morning after he hit his head and fell into the water while stepping off a dock.

Officials say the boy's parents noticed him missing while loading a boat near the Seaforth boat ramp.

Rescue workers searched for about twenty minutes before finding him in the water.
