ROLLA, Missouri- The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a teen nearly drowned at The Fugitive Beach Tuesday afternoon.

David K. Jackson, 19, from St. Louis. David was swimming and became submerged. After he did not resurface, a lifeguard pulled him from the water. He was transported to Phelps Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.

“We are asking for prayers and a miracle healing for David age 19 of St. Louis who was swimming at the beach and was recovered from under the water. David was transported to the hospital where he remains in intensive care.

Our Heavenly Father the one and only true god, we pray for a miracle that only you can bring. We pray for Davids full recovery, for him to be back with his family and friends. Father we pray for his family to be comforted in these times. We pray for all the responders and employees at the beach. In Jesus name we pray. Amen,” park owners said in a statement.
