Two Dead, One Missing After Drownings On Leslie County River

Two bodies have been recovered and a third person is missing after a swimming trip turned deadly in Leslie County Monday night.

The incident happened at about 7 p.m. at the Middle Fork River. State Police say four people were swimming behind the Leslie County High School when three of them went over the dam and apparently drowned.

The water in the area is not very high, but rescuers say the force of the water makes it difficult to swim.

Blake Bray says he and some friends were playing football behind the school when the survivor approached them to ask for help.
