An elderly Osage Beach man is lucky to be alive after nearly drowning over the weekend. The Osage Beach Police Department received a call regarding a missing person identified as 76 year old Roger Farrow who was last seen walking his dog on Jeffries road. Sergant Arlyne Page says Farrow is alive thanks to the efforts of an officer who began walking the shoreline and discovered him face down in the water.
Page says Farrow is recovering from his injuries at an area hospital and should be discharged in the next couple of days. His dog was later found safe by neighbors.
