Hundreds Gather to Celebrate the Life of Owen Williamson

Hundreds gathered in Traverse City tonight, to honor Owen Williamson, the 17 year old who drowned in the Twin Lakes on Friday.

Many have broken hearts over the sudden death of a young man they say was a rising star.

Owen was swimming with friends, when he got about 50 feet from shore and started to struggle and yell for help.

When rescue crews reached him and pulled him to shore, it was too late.

9&10's Vanessa Fayz takes us to the candlelight vigil as the community remembers Owen.
