The parents of a teen who drowned at Wenatchee High School last year will receive $2 million in a settlement with the school district, according to attorneys.

Antonio Reyes, 14, drowned while swimming in gym class on November 17, 2011. Reyes was estimated to be underwater at the bottom of the pool for 40 minutes.

The Reyes family filed a $15 million lawsuit against the Wenatchee School District.

According to Reyes' family attorney Simeon Osborn, the $2 million settlement also includes a public apology and implementing a lifeguard on duty at the pool at all times.

Antonio has a twin brother who still attends Wenatchee High School.
