The drowning happened Tuesday at the Aqua Adventure water park portion of Land of Illusion Adventure Park, some 40 miles north of downtown Cincinnati, the Butler County Sheriff's Office said.
The teen had gone under water around 5 p. m. , and someone called emergency responders to say she was drowning, the sheriff's office said.
