Dive Crews Find Teen in St. Joseph River

Dive teams have found the body of 15-year-old Troy Reasonover after he fell into the St. Joseph River near Central Park in Mishawaka Wednesday night.

The young man was fishing with two other people and slipped in after he attempted to retrieve what he thought was a fishing pole.

The incident occurred around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday evening.

In an unrelated incident earlier Wednesday evening, a man jumped into the river near Merrifield Park to rescue his dog. Shortly afterwards, the man's wife jumped in to help him.

When she showed signs of struggle another man jumped in to help to her. He was able to pull the wife from the water, but her husband drowned.
