The young man who drowned in a farm pond last week had no family in the United States. Its unlikely that Egardor Lopezs family will be able to afford to have his body returned to Honduras.

Lopez, 25, who was a tenant farmer for Billy McNees, died last Thursday after he jumped into a pond on the McNees property about 8:40 p.m.

Deputy Robert Peak of the Harrison County Sheriff's Department, said Lopez was fishing with three friends and co-workers at the 400-foot by 115-foot pond when he stripped to his underwear, jumped in and swam the shortest distance across the pond.
