An American teen died while swimming in Belize on Saturday.

Reports are that the youth was one of
32 students who went swimming at Tiger Sandy Bay on Saturday afternoon and was discovered missing during a head count about an hour later. The body was discovered and retrieved by the Coast Guard, which was summoned to the scene later.

Police are trying to reach the teenager’s family to relay the details of the incident before they release her name to the public.
