Oquan Reed died on Saturday while on a church group field trip to the "Douglas Rope Swing." When Reed took his turn on theĀ  swing, unfortunately he went under and never came back up, deputies say.

Several people told deputies they tried to rescue Reed, but the water was just too murky and they couldn't find him in time.
