A 16-year-old boy is dead and his 14-year-old brother is missing after they were swept away while swimming off Hawaii's Big Island. Police say they were swimming off a remote beach in the Puna district Thursday when the current and high surf swept them out. Two adults and the older teen were rescued. Police say the 16-year-old was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The fire department and the U.S. Coast Guard searched for the younger boy until midnight. The search was expected to resume at daybreak Friday.

An FBI agent who works undercover has told jurors about a ride to see Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's vacation home in 2020. Mark Schweers is the first trial witness to directly connect two men to that key step in an alleged plot to kidnap Whitmer. Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. are on trial for a second time for a kidnapping conspiracy. A jury in April couldn't reach a unanimous verdict. Schweers also explained to jurors how he secretly recorded Fox expressing contempt for Whitmer during their first meeting. Fox is heard saying he wants Whitmer “flex-cuffed on a table.” Defense lawyers say it was all a bunch of wild talk, not a kidnapping scheme.

The Birmingham-based Drummond Co. Inc. must clean up an abandoned site and pay $3.65 million under an agreement approved by a federal judge in a lawsuit over environmental pollution in north Alabama. The settlement was announced in a statement by environmental groups. It follows years of litigation over contamination of the Locust Fork of the Black Warrior River. The old Drummond site hasn’t been mined since the 1980s. But activists argued that discharges of acidic water, toxic metals and other contaminants were still getting into the water.

Amazon-owned companies Ring and Hollywood studio MGM are partnering to create a TV show in the mold of “America’s Funniest Home Videos." MGM says the half-hour “Ring Nation” program will showcase viral footage from Ring’s doorbell and smart-home cameras. The series is the latest example of Amazon’s fusion of its various business arms. It also presents a branding and marketing opportunity for Amazon, which bought Ring in 2018. Since then, the company has dealt with rounds of privacy concerns around Ring and its relationship with police departments across the country. The show will be hosted by comedian Wanda Sykes and premier in syndication on September 26.
