Man drowns near Delaware Water Gap
Officials say a New York man is dead after being pulled under water.
Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area Superintendent John J. Donahue announced that 51-year-old Juan Roberto Salomon Delacruz, of Brooklyn, N.Y., drowned Saturday afternoon near Kittatinny Point.
Park rangers and troopers responded to a report of a missing person.
National Park Service's boat operators found the body just 90 minutes after the initial report.
Officals say the Delcacruz was found about 20 yards from the shore in nine to 12 feet of water.
Divers recovered the body.
Delacruz had been swimming and picnicking with his family, but he was not wearing a life jacket at the time of death.
This was the second drowning death in the Delaware River in less than two weeks.
A nine-year-old Pike County boy also drowned July 8 while fishing in the park.
