Tourist Drowns in PCB

A man from Mexico who just turned 18 years old drowned this weekend on Panama City Beach, but police haven't been able to locate or notify his family because his friends don't speak English.

Police believe the teenager got into trouble around 4:30 Saturday afternoon when he and his friends walked out to the sand bar near the Boardwalk Beach Resort.

Witnesses say the group could not swim very well and began waving and screaming for help. Two men and a child were pulled to safety.

Police say the teen's body washed ashore more than three hours later. An autopsy will confirm cause of death.
