ALBANY, Ore. -- An Albany Fire Department diver pulled a swimmer from the Calapooia River on late Saturday afternoon. The swimmer was given CPR and then taken to Albany General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Albany firefighters told The Corvallis Gazette-Times that the swimmer was trying to cross the Calapooia near its confluence with the Willamette River.
The diver found the swimmer about 6 feet below the surface of the water about 20 minutes after rescuers arrived.
The swimmer's name has not been released. The Benton County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident as an accidental drowning.
