Second Swain County Teen Death

Updated: Monday, April 1 2013, 04:26 PM EDT

The people of Swain County are dealing with a second tragedy in just two-days, the death of another well known and well liked teenager.

16-year-old Nate Southards was a junior at Swain County High School, who died early Monday morning.

The sheriff's office is still investigating the case. Nate's death comes less than two-days after 19-year-old Tyler Bowman was killed in an ATV accident.

Tyler was a 2012 Swain County graduate. Grief counselors have been brought into the high school.

A memorial will be held for both teens on Friday at the school.

That service is for students and staff.
