COVINGTON, LA (WVUE) -

A body recovered from a pond north of Covington on Friday afternoon has been identified as 17-year-old Zachary Foret, according to St. Tammany Parish Coroner Dr. Charles Preston confirmed.

Foret was kayaking with two other teens in a pond in the Penn Mill Lakes area between Covington and Folsom when he fell from the watercraft, possibly following a separate medical event. At this time, the death is not believed to be related to the severe weather. An autopsy will be conducted Monday.

Coroner's Office personnel are working with the St. Tammany Sheriff's Office and the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in investigating the fatality.
