LOST BRIDGE VILLAGE, Ark. – A student at the University of Arkansas drowns at Beaver Lake on Independence Day.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Hayden Greenway from Rogers was attempting to untangle two anchored boats near a swimming spot on the lake, locally known as “The Rock”.
Authorities say Greenway dove under the boats and never resurfaced.
The sheriff’s department, Arkansas Game and Fish, the Grassy Knob Fire Department, and two local dive teams assisted in the search for Greenway. His body was found just before 11 p.m. that night.
Officials say this is the first drowning in Beaver Lake this year.
