A teen died in a Hudson Valley creek while celebrating the Fourth of July.

On Wednesday afternoon, first responders responded to the Catskill Creek swimming hole near Route 23 and New York State Thruway overpass bridge for a report of a man underwater in the Catskill Creek who couldn't swim.

When rescuers pulled the man from the water he was unresponsive, officials say. 18-year-old Nay Htoo of Albany was pronounced dead at the scene after life-saving efforts failed, WRGB reports.

It's believed the 18-year-old was swimming with friends near the creek when he slipped off some rocks and fell into the creek, according to WNYT.
