Three boys drowned at Arkansas lake
by UPI

PLUMMERVILLE, Ark. -- Three boys all under the age of 10 drowned in Brewer Lake in Conway County, Ark., when their family vehicle drove into the lake, police say.

Police said after 26 year-old Amanda Turley drove her vehicle into Brewer Lake Sunday, volunteers tried in vain to rescue her three sons before they drowned in the body of water near Plumerville, Ark., KATV of Little Rock, Ark., said.

Killed in the incident were Turley's sons, Aaron, 8; Alex, 7; and 2 year-old Anthony.

KFSM-TV of Fort Smith, Ark., said Turley told police she drove into the lake accidentally after turning onto an old state highway that leads directly to the lake.

Turley's brother, Larry, told police his sister attempted to save her sons, but was unable to bring them to shore herself.

Sonny Storver of the Conway Sheriff's Office said while the deadly incident is currently being viewed as an accident, investigators are considering all possibilities in the matter.

"We're looking into everything right now," he told KATV. "We just want to make sure we've got everything covered from the accident scene."
