How A Drowning Scare Turned Out Funny
WILLIAMSPORT, Ohio — A body spotted floating in the Susquehanna River just below a spill-dam caused some alarm in the town of Williamsport, Ohio, this week.
The body was discovered in an area that has seen drownings before.
Police and the coroner were on scene, fully prepared to investigate a drowning. Sue Hubbard was under that impression, she first spotted the man’s body in shallow water.
“I saw him down there all by myself, second thought was oh my gosh,” said Hubbard.
It was not long, though and the man sat up. He was okay, just floating in the river on a hot summer’s day.
People who witnessed it could not believe it.
“We were standing here talking to you, all of a sudden he sat up, and apparently wasn’t dead,” said Matthew Kranz of Williamsport.
The man fell asleep in the river and was oblivious to what was going on around him until a dragonfly landed on his nose.
