Canoe Flips Over In Snake River & Man Still Missing
Search and Rescue teams from all over Idaho are now all coming together in hopes of finding a man who fell out of a canoe Friday afternoon at Celebration Park. According to KTVB, dispatchers say a man and a woman were canoeing in the Snake River and had some kind of an accident which ended up with the canoe flipping over. This all went down around 3:30 p.m. about a mile away from the park.
The woman is safe. She was somehow able to make it back to shore but the man is nowhere to be found. Search and Rescue teams believe he was not wearing a life jacket. The search continued through Saturday by helicopter and by boat until it was just too dark to search anymore. It was called off about 8:45 p.m. and has resumed again this morning.
The identities of the man and woman have not been released yet. We'll keep you posted as more information is available.
