19-year-old Fla. Man Drowns in Creek

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — The body of a 19-year-old southwest Florida man has been found in a creek.

Clearwater authorities said Logan Kushner and a friend were in the park after midnight Sunday smoking a form of synthetic marijuana when Kushner began acting strangely and decided to jump in the water. His friend tried to persuade him to leave. Authorities said his friend eventually left because he had a curfew but called the victim when he got home.

Another friend went to the creek to check on Kushner and found him unresponsive in the water.
