Drownings



(WBEN)  Around 6 p-m Saturday, a 22-year-old Amherst man fell into the water while hiking in Whirlpool State Park. His friends saw him caught in the rapids and carried out of sight.

Around 9:40 last night a woman was seen going over the falls at Prospect Point. The search for both missing people will resume in the morning.

There also was a drowning off Chautauqua County. Teenagers at a church event at Barcelona Harbor in Westfield jumped into Lake Erie, and one went under and could not be found for nearly half an hour. 17-year-old Jan Carlos Delosantos-Nunez of Jamestown could not be revived.
