A disabled teenager drowned in Fort Worth on Sunday afternoon.

Emergency personnel were called to a house in the 3200 block of Wabash Avenue where 17-year-old Kirk Johnson was found in the family's swimming pool.

The victim's father tried to perform CPR, but neither he nor paramedics were able to revive him.

A fire department spokesman was unable to describe the nature of Johnson's disability.
