A 12-year-old drowned in a pond in Bethpage, Tennessee. The 12-year-old, Arthur Hawk Suddarth III, was visiting a friend, Hope Postell, when he went into the small pond to swim. It was reported that Postell said she observed Suddarth go into the pond and not come back up. Hope then went over to a neighbor’s house and called 911. Authorities responded to the call of possible drowning around 7:00 PM. A Volunteer Fire Department member was able to recover Suddarth from the pond. Suddarth was later pronounced dead at Sumner Regional Medical Center.
