(Updates at the bottom.)
17-year-old Semaj Johnson was out swimming with three friends on Wednesday, however Johnson tried to turn back to shore but never made it.
Update June 22: The news of Johnson's death has been a hit to the community and Beaufort Hight School, who already saw the death of two students in a car wreck earlier this year.
WSAV 3 has a video report about Johnson and the impact of his passing (see that here) and The Island Packet offers a fuller written report (read that here) and notes that Johnson was due to sign up for the Marine Corps on Thursday.
