4 Men Feared Drowned In Idaho Reservoir
AMERICAN FALLS, IDAHO (AP) - Four men are missing and feared drowned in a southern Idaho reservoir after 1 of the men was pushed into the water and the others tried to rescue him.
Power County sheriffs officials say they received a report at 5:30 p.m. Sunday from five children saying they were drifting in a boat on American Falls Reservoir. The oldest child was 9.
Officials say the children told rescuers there were four men with them. 1 of the men, as a joke, pushed another man into the water. He couldn't swim and the other three jumped in to save him, including one wearing a lift vest. The children say the boat drifted away from the men.
Divers and search and rescue teams began a search Sunday and were to resume at 7 a.m. Monday with the help of an Army helicopter.
