Texas teen killed by flood waters

SCHERTZ, Texas — Search teams found the body Sunday of a teenager who was swept away by flood waters as he tried to swim across a swollen creek near San Antonio, authorities said.

Avron Adams, 18, of Schertz, and a friend got caught Saturday in the swift waters of Cibolo Creek after about a half-dozen friends swam across. One friend held onto a tree branch and got out, but Adams did not, officials said.
