Cartersville, Ga. --- (WXIA) A Georgia teen drowned in a bizarre incident early Sunday morning, just hours after his high school graduation.
Witnesses say 18 year-old Chance Werner of Cartersville was playing a game with friends during which a person would sit in a shopping cart tied to a pole. Then the cart was forcefully pushed off the dock, causing the person to "pop" out of the cart and into the water.

He did not resurface.
