Adventurous, courageous, and a big heart. That’s how the family of a 17-year old is remembering the teen after he drowned last weekend at Covell Lake.

Shawn Briggs and a friend were on the lake when their kayaks overturned.      

Rescue crews spent hours searching for Shawn. 

His mom, Michelle Fox, said Shawn was trying to save his friend.

This drowning is also bringing awareness to water safety at this time of year. Jeremy Roe with South Dakota Game Fish and Parks joins Inside KELOLAND to talk about being safe on the water.
