Warmer weather and the cold, swollen Cuyahoga River has made for a deadly combination this week in Ohio, claiming the lives of two women this week and almost killing another last week. The Beacon Journal states that that the massive amount of rain the area was pummeled with in May has caused the currents and levels of the region’s streams to rise. With temperatures in the 60s, the water is easily capable of bringing on hypothermia.
The latest accident occurred on Wednesday, when a woman fell into the waters after slipping on the rocks just after midnight. A friend she was with was able to quickly jump in and pull the woman back to the banks. The rocks proved too slick for the physically impaired woman to get out of the water. Her friend went for help, but the time he arrived with assistance nearly an hour later, the woman had perished.
