AUTOPSIES FRIDAY TO ESTABLISH IDS, CAUSE OF DEATH FOR 2 MALES FOUND IN SUSQUEHANNA RIVER

MARCH 10, 2016

Officials are investigating the deaths of two males found Wednesday afternoon in the Susquehanna River, about two miles apart, near Safe Harbor Power Plant.

The first male was found about 2:30 p.m., along a skimmer wall at the power plant. A deputy coroner, along with teams from Blue Rock Fire Rescue and Columbia River Rescue, responded to the scene.

The male was removed from the water and pronounced dead.

About 5 p.m., a member of the rescue teams found a second body along a shoreline, about two miles north of the power plant.

That male also was pronounced dead at the scene.

Autopsies are planned for Friday to determine identities of the males and what caused their deaths.

No identification cards were found with the bodies. Their ages couldn't be determined or estimated.

Manor Township police are assisting in the investigation to determine if a crime occurred regarding either male's death.
