Search for missing teen comes to tragic end in Delaware River in OrangePosted: Updated:
The body of a 19-year-old Pennsylvania man was recovered Thursday from the Delaware River in Orange County.
Police say two men were fishing in Sparrowbush in a two-man kayak when their boat capsized in the rapids of the river. One of the men made it to shore. Thirty-eight rescue crews from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania searched the river for two days. Police say the victim, Martin McDonough, was found in 15 feet of water.
New York state police are conducting a criminal investigation into the incident, and the Orange County coroner will perform an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
