Genoa Township police say a 16-year-old boy rescued from the Hoover Reservoir on Saturday has died.

Police early Sunday morning said the boy died at a local hospital, where he was taken after being pulled from the water in the area of Sunbury Road near Westerville. Police say it appears the unidentified boy jumped off a cliff while swimming with friends. They and a passerby tried to help the boy.
