A 16-year-old boy’s body was recovered Sunday night from a pond, say conservation officers with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
Crews responded just after 2:50 p.m. on Sunday, May 15, to a report of a juvenile missing in the pond after falling from a rope swing in the 71700 block of County Road 29. That’s just north of U.S. 6 and about a mile north of the town of Syracuse.
Witnesses told officers that the boy was swinging from an elevated platform by a rope swing. He jumped from the swing and into the water and never rose to the surface. The body of Kadin Schrock was found about five feet underwater.
Schrock was a sophomore at Fairfield High School. The school district released the following statement:
With profound sadness and sorrow, Fairfield Community Schools confirms the loss of one of its students, sophomore Kadin Schrock, on May 15, 2022, to accidental drowning in a private pond. “Kadin was a great teammate on and off the field. He worked hard and loved the game of baseball. He means so much to our program. He’s a true Falcon,” shared baseball coach Darin Kauffman. High School Principal, Jason Grasty agreed, echoing that, “Kadin was an outstanding young man. He was a three-sport athlete – involved in baseball, football, and wrestling. Kadin also excelled in the classroom. His passing leaves a huge void in our Falcon Family.”
Our sincere condolences and thoughts go out to Kadin’s family, friends, and a number of students affected by his passing. As our community processes this tragic news and copes with its grief, Fairfield Community Schools will continue to provide counseling and bereavement support services to all of our students and staff. The school community will continue to lift up this family in our thoughts and prayers as they navigate this difficult time.
