Classmates Mourn East High Teen's Death

Madison East High School students are mourning after the death of a classmate.

Even though school is out for the summer, counselors were on hand Monday to talk to students after the death of Trevor Knight. The 17-year-old died Sunday from injuries he received in a boating accident on Lake Mendota.

According to investigators, Trevor did not pull up the anchor on his boat before hitting the throttle, and the anchor flew out of the water and hit him in the head.

Trevor's guidance counselor says he was well-liked, and word of the accident spread during the weekend's graduation parties.
