BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- A teenager has died after being rescued from Buffalo Creek Thursday evening.

Rescue teams were called to Buffalo Creek around 7:00 p.m. Thursday night after reports of a person going under the water and not resurfacing. Witnesses say a group of teenagers were jumping from a bridge into the creek.

Rescue divers found the 17-year-old Gary Ramos of Buffalo underwater after a short seach, and performed CPR before the teen was taken to an area hospital.

Ramos passed away late Thursday night at Mercy Hospital in South Buffalo.
