LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A southern Indiana community is dealing with a heartbreaking loss of a teen.

Seventeen-year-old Jimmy Bittner was a senior at South Central High School in Elizabeth, Indiana.

Jimmy was in Outer Banks, North Carolina during fall break when a strong current pulled him underwater.

His body was recovered Sunday night about 15 miles from where he disappeared.

The South Harrison Schools superintendent told WHAS11 News they held a memorial service for Bittner and a math teacher and volleyball coach Patty Shaffer who passed away in early October.
