MOORESVILLE, N.C. -

A student at N.C. State University has drowned at a rock quarry in Mooresville that was open to the public at the time.
    
Charlotte fire Battalion Chief A.D. Brown says divers recovered the body of 19-year-old Ryan Hayes of Harrisburg on Tuesday. He says the divers recovered the body in 25 feet of water at the Carrigan Farms rock quarry off N.C. 150 East.
    
Brown says Hayes had gone to the quarry with several friends.
    
The website for Carrigan Farms says Tuesday was one of the few days that the quarry is open to individuals. It says lifeguards aren't provided and everyone swims at their own risk.
    
In a statement on the website, officials with Carrigan Farms say their thoughts and prayers are with Hayes' friends and family.
