— A Pembroke teen-ager went swimming Saturday night with a group of friends, but for him the outing had fatal consequences.

Friends say 15-year-old Russell Lambert went under the water and never came back up.

After searching their swimming site in the Lumber River, the other teens were able to bring Lambert out of the water.

Rescue crews tried to revive him, but Lambert died a short time later at a local hospital.
