CASTILE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a search will continue Tuesday for a 9-year-old boy presumed to have drowned when he and six family members were swept over a waterfall at a western New York park known as the “Grand Canyon of the East.”
State police identified the missing boy as Dylan Giangregorio of Brockport. Police say the body of his brother, 6-year-old Preston Giangregorio, was recovered Sunday afternoon.
Police did not release the names of two men and three girls who were rescued Saturday evening after going over the 70-foot-high Lower Falls on the Genesee River in Letchworth State Park, 40 miles southwest of Rochester.
State park police Maj. David Page says the seven family members had left a designated trail and entered the water above the falls. Swimming in the river is prohibited throughout the park.
