UPDATE: Victim recovered….more details to come
Mid-County and Osage Beach fire responded to a possible drowning in Osage Beach Tuesday evening. It began around 3pm when it’s believed two people were fishing from a canoe that either capsized or began taking on water. Residents from the nearby apartments rescued one person from the water. The water patrol responded and conducted a surface search, dragging operations, and use of side-scan sonar before abandoning the effort. The Highway Patrol dive team is expected on scene today to continue search efforts.
