A teenager who drowned while cooling off in an ornamental lake he was helping to build has been named by police.
Man-made lake where construction worker drowned
Christopher Nigel Jones went for a swim with a colleague at the man-made lake at Paper Mill Farm in Hurstbourne Priors near Whitchurch, in Hampshire, when he got into difficulties.
The 17-year-old was the son of a worker at the site and had come down from Yorkshire only a two days ago to help out driving a dumper truck.
A Hampshire police spokesman said it appears the pair, who were both working at the site, jumped in to cool off despite warning signs saying "Danger Deep Water".
The accident happened in temperatures of 31C (87F). His friend, unable save him, called the emergency services.
A diving team from Gosport and Fareham lifeboat recovered his body at about 2000 BST on Tuesday, after police and fire fighters failed to locate him in the muddy water.
Mr Jones, from Hamel Rise, Hemsworth, Pontefract, West Yorkshire, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Steve Hobbs, from the Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service, said: "We were contacted by police and we turned up to do what we could. Unfortunately it was a tragic loss of life.
"It was a construction site with excavation plant around. There was no visible sign of the lad but we found him after we searched the lake for
approximately five minutes.
"People should not enter unknown water. If they want to cool off they should go to the seaside, where they are properly supervised, or the local swimming pool.
"Do not dive in to cool off, you do not know what is underneath."
Police are treating the death as an accident.
