BARTOW COUNTY, Ga. — Authorities said a Georgia teenager drowned early Sunday morning playing a game with friends at Lake Allatoona.

In the game, one person sits in a shopping cart and is pushed into the water.

The shopping cart is usually tied to a pole but, in this case, it was tied to the victim. The victim has been identified as 18-year-old Chance Werner.

Police say Werner was pulled into the water along with the shopping cart and didn’t resurface.

Werner had just graduated from high school on Saturday.
