Both victims recovered from Neversink River

CUDDEBACKVILLE – The bodies of the two people who were washed away by the raging waters of the Neversink River in Cuddebackville have been recovered.

Search crews from State Police and fire departments from Orange, Sullivan and Pike counties scoured the river since they went missing on Saturday.

The 46-year-old father dove into the river when his nine-year-old son and 16-year-old boy were spilled into the water from a raft. Another man was able to swim to the older child and bring him to safety, but the other man and his son were carried away by the current.

The search went on during the daylight hours for the last three days and early Monday afternoon, both bodies were recovered.
