Drowning of Grants Pass Man Is 5th in the Rogue This Year
A Grants Pass man is believed to have drowned in the Rogue River just a few days before his 21st birthday.
KDRV reports that Sean Kreuger is one of at least five people who have lost their lives in the river this year alone.
This recent drowning happened Monday night around 5 p.m. in Griffin Park. After an unsuccessful rescue mission the night before, divers and tenders went searching for the 20-year-ld's body Tuesday morning.
Josephine County Sheriff's officials say Kreuger was trying to cross the river when he was pulled beneath the water. They say the water most likely appeared calmer on the surface than it really was.
