Bodies of father, son recovered from pond in Lakewood

Authorities say a father and son were killed yesterday while playing with a remote control boat in Lakewood.

Police say the father, 47-year-old Mark Volz Sr., and his son, 17-year-old Mark Volz Jr., went to unstick the boat and probably got stuck in the silt or tangled in plant growth.

Officials say a passerby saw their truck as well as the remote control boat shortly after 6 p.m. and called 911.
