As Darwin Gravely Nods...

3 Chicago Teens Drown in River After Paddle Boats Sinks

ALGONQUIN, Ill. — Three Chicago high schoolers on a retreat to teach young black men to become "ethical leaders" drowned early Friday after they snuck away from their camp in the middle of the night and launched paddle boats whose floor plugs had been removed for the winter.

The boats quickly sank, dumping the teens in the swift current of 42-degree water.
