Tragedy Strikes As Two Teens Perish Attempting Dare Jump From Bridge

In a devastating turn of events, two high school boys lost their lives after succumbing to a dare to jump from a South Carolina bridge. The victims, identified as Rayan Alnasser, 16, and Zakaria Chaar, 15, both sophomores at D.W. Daniel High School, tragically drowned in Lake Hartwell on Monday, following a dare initiated during a group chat with friends.

According to officials from the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office, the fatal dare occurred late Saturday at Twelve Mile River Bridge, with one of the boys jumping into the water and immediately encountering distress. Chief Deputy Chuck James revealed that the second boy bravely attempted to rescue his friend but was ultimately overcome by the strong current, leading to both boys being submerged.

Despite frantic efforts by friends and emergency responders, Alnasser and Chaar could not be located in the water. The search, which commenced Saturday night and continued into Sunday, intensified with the deployment of divers, boats and sonar technology. Tragically, their lifeless bodies were discovered on Monday morning in a section of the lake approximately 15 feet deep.

Authorities expressed concerns over the dangers associated with social media trends that encourage risky behaviors like bridge jumping. Chief Deputy James emphasized the inherent risks involved, urging individuals to prioritize safety over reckless challenges.

The School District of Pickens County extended its heartfelt condolences to the families of the two students, acknowledging the profound impact of their loss on the entire community. As grief permeates through classmates and teachers, the district assured the provision of support services to those in need, including counseling and mental health resources.

Rayan Alnasser, remembered as a talented soccer player, received tributes from his coach, Thomas Izaguirre, who expressed deep sorrow over the untimely loss.

“I would give up every trophy and even my life for him to be back with his family,” Izaguirre wrote in a Facebook tribute. “Rayan you will be missed. I will forever carry you in my heart. I love you Rayan rest easy.”

Meanwhile, classmates like Mackenzie Witt reflected on the positive influence Alnasser and Chaar had within the school community, emphasizing their enduring spirit of camaraderie and love.

In honor of the fallen students, the school district plans to organize a vigil to commemorate their lives and offer solace to those mourning their loss.
