Woman Drowns In High Water

By  | 

AMESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a recent hip surgery
patient using a walker was swept away and drowned in southeast Ohio
when rising water stalled her vehicle.

Authorities say 74-year-old Barbara Cantrell of Amesville was
swept away late last night as she and her husband fled their car,
which had stalled in rising water. Her body was found this morning.

Rome Township Fire Department Chief Jeremy Snedden tells The
Athens Messenger that the victim's husband was holding onto her
when he stumbled, fell and lost his grip.
