Teenager Swept into Storm Drain by Flood Water
ELDON - The mayor of Eldon confirmed with KOMU 8 News Friday night that a 17-year-old boy was swept away by flood waters into a four-by-four storm drain.
The Eldon Police Department received a report Friday afternoon and still have not found the teen.
The mayor said that the victim was messing around near the storm drain, slipped, fell and was sucked in.
A dive team is preparing to investigate the drain, but must wait for the water levels to go down before going in.
The individual's name was not released because not all the family members had been notified.
