(CNN) -- As temperatures soared Monday, the cool water of Shreveport, Louisiana's, Red River lured a group of family and friends to its banks.
In an effort to cool off, one of the teens wandered into the shallow part of the river.
At some point he slipped into deep water and started to drown.
So six more teens went to his rescue.
Only one made it back to shore.

Op you said it was on Cnn but I havn't heard a peep of this. Are they saying these people couldn't swim? Who would attempt a rescue if they couldn't swim in the first place. That many teens together no one learns to swim? This has BP corexit dispersants written on it's forehead. written all over it.
Fumes rising just above the water, thinning only as they rise, would keep a person from breath when they come up for air. This sounds more likely to me.
