Bodies Of Three Fishermen Recovered From Arkansas River
Authorities say the body of a third fisherman has been recovered after they all accidentally fell into the Arkansas River early Thursday.
Tulsa Fire Department Capt. Stan May says the third man was pulled out of the river late Thursday afternoon after an all-day recovery effort in and along the river.
Authorities say one of the men went into rushing water near a low-water dam in midtown to go noodling — or attempt to catch a fish with his hands.
May says the first man started to struggle in the water, so two others went in to help him.
Tulsa authorities say all three fishermen eventually went underwater.
Crews had dispatched several rescue boats in search of the missing men and temporarily shut down the dam to aid their search.
