It seems that another person drowned in our community. Last week we reported a drowning in Lake Canadarago which occurred when a man lost his life trying to retrieve his boat which had drifted off an island in the lake.
This time, a man drowned in the Whitney Point Reservoir on Saturday night, New York State Police said. A 57-year-old man from Pennsylvania whose name has not been released was kayaking with another person when his boat overturned and he has still not been found. State Police conducted a helicopter search and dispatched an underwater recovery team to no avail. Broome and Chenango County Sheriff’s Deputies, along with K9s, several fire crews and even volunteers, searched the surrounding land and found nothing. The investigation is ongoing.
Police did not say whether the missing kayaker was wearing a life jacket.
