CHENEY, Kan. (AP) -- A 19-year-old Wichita man has drowned while trying to help a friend at Cheney Reservoir in south-central Kansas.

Reno County sheriff's deputy Lee Johnson announced on the agency's Facebook page that the victim was Marcus Marqaiz Hutton. The posting said that the drowning was reported around 5 p.m. Saturday near the lake's yacht club.

Witnesses told authorities that they were swimming when one of Hutton's friends started yelling for help. Hutton pushed the friend to shallow water before going under water. Hutton's body was found around 8 p.m.
