A large search effort was ongoing on Wednesday night for a teenage boy who went missing from shallow waters at Noreuil Park in Albury.
The Border Mail understands a group of three teenage boys were in shallow water by a bank near the boat ramp.
The two friends tried to help the young man, who went under just before 7pm, but he did not resurface.
After raising the alarm, they spoke to police.
The pair were treated by paramedics and taken to Albury hospital.
