Hamblen drownings
The Hamblen County Sheriff's Office says the bodies of two teenagers who drowned in Cherokee Lake on Tuesday, have been recovered.  Hamblen County Sheriff Esco Jarnigan says the 16-year-old, male and female, went underwater at Evergreen Cove around 5:30 p.m. "What it looks to us, is that they were simply just playing in the water quite possibly they may not be strong swimmers and because of that just caught underwater and couldn't get back up," according to Lt. David Cribley.  Jarnigan says no foul play is suspected, and the deaths are believed to be accidental.
