Search continues after 3 tubers die, 2 disappear at dam


EDEN, N.C. (AP) -- Rescue teams have continued to scour a North Carolina river for two missing tubers following a deadly accident in which a family went over a dam.

The Greensboro News & Record reported Saturday that search teams still hadn't found a 7-year-old boy and a 35-year-old woman.

The two were part of a group of nine that floated down the Dan River on inflatable tubes Wednesday and went over a dam that's about 8 feet high.

Four people were rescued Thursday, while three tubers' bodies were found.

Still missing were 35-year-old Teresa Villano and 7-year-old Isiah Crawford. Both are from the town of Eden, North Carolina.
