CARTER COUNTY, MO (KFVS)- Sad news on this Fourth of July holiday as a family who appears to have been camping deals with an unthinkable tragedy.

According to the Missouri Water Patrol, a 14 year old boy drowned Sunday morning around 8:45a.m. on the Current River.

It happened near Big Springs in Van Buren, that's in Carter County.

Officials identify the victim as 14 year old Nicholas Bosecker of Mounds, Illinois.

We understand the boy was swimming with family as they were getting out of the water.

Bosecker apparently lost his shoe, and went to get it.

He reportedly went under, and surfaced several times.

When he surfaced the last time he was floating face down.

He floated about 200 yards where he was recovered by a passing boater.
