Emergency crews called to 'possible drowning' at Boomtown USA


Emergency crews were called to Boomtown USA RV Resort in Orange County near Rose City around 1:30 p.m. Thursday on a call of a possible drowning.

Orange County Sheriff's Deputy Chad Hogan told 12News a group of teens was swimming in the lake at the RV park. One of the teens said he saw what appeared to be a body under water. 

A Sheriff's Office boat with a sonar system and a diver were called out to search the lake.

The owner of Boomtown USA said everyone who lives at the park had been accounted for. By 5:30 p.m., no body was found and the search was called off.
