A 17-year-old remains in critical condition after drowning under a hydronic dam at a creek near the Robertson County Fairgrounds last Sunday.

The incident occurred shortly before 1:41 pm when emergency dispatch first received a phone call alerting them of the situation. According to Robertson County EMS Director Brent Dyer, two teenage girls, one 17 and the other 16, were attempting to retrieve a soccer ball from the water. The 17-year-old fell in and got caught under the dam, eventually losing consciousness. The 16-year-old went in and held onto her friend but was unable to pull her out.
