1 Fisherman Dead, 2 More Missing In Tulsa River

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say one man is dead and two others are missing after falling into the Arkansas River early Thursday.

Tulsa Fire Department Capt. Stan May says one body was recovered from the river several hours after going underwater.

Authorities say 1 of the men went into rushing water near a low-water dam in midtown to go noodling - or attempt to catch a fish with his hands. May says the man started to struggle in the water, so two others went in to help him.

Tulsa authorities say all three men eventually went underwater.

Crews have sent out several rescue boats in search of the two missing men and have temporarily shut down the dam to aid their search.
