A teenage boy and a woman in her 30's drowned at Euclid Beach Park in Cleveland Sunday afternoon.

Emergency calls were received at 4:14 p.m. when one of the boys in a group started to struggle while swimming. Dive teams from the Cleveland Fire Department pulled the boy from the water after about 20 minutes.

While crews were searching for the boy, a woman dove in to try and save him. She was pulled from the water by other swimmers.

According to police, the woman, 34-year-old Kelly Walker of Cleveland died at MetroHealth Hospital and the boy, 15-year-old Bryce Canady of Cleveland Heights, died at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.

Metroparks and Cleveland Fire officials said the water was 10 to 12 feet deep and no lifeguards were on duty at this area of the beach.

There are signs posted that warn swimmers of strong currents and deep drop-offs, which may have been a factor in the drowning. There were no small craft advisories, waves were no more than 1-2 feet. 

It is not known if the victims knew each other, but they may have been part of a larger gathering that came to enjoy the beach.
