S.C. teen drowns in ocean off Hilton Head

Aug 9, 2010 8:19:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say a South Carolina teenager drowned while swimming in the ocean with his younger siblings off Hilton Head Island.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports 18-year-old Xavier Eady of Ridgeland died Sunday evening at a Hilton Head hospital.

Beaufort County deputy coroner David Ott says Eady was swimming with his 16-year-old brother and 14-year-old sister when he disappeared under the waves about 5:30 p.m.

Ott says the teen's mother began looking for Eady when his siblings came ashore without him. Minutes later, three men carried him from the waves.

It was Hilton Head's second drowning in two days. A 72-year-old Hilton Head Island man drowned Friday night after falling from a dock into a creek during a heavy rain.
