RAW Video: Man found dead in Lehigh River

July 23, 2015 at 1:44pm

Just after 9:00 AM, Lehigh County 9-1-1 dispatched Coplay Station 5, Whitehall Dive Team and Northampton Borough Dive Team with boats to the Lehigh River just north of the Cement Kilns in Coplay for a swift water rescue.

Once located, it was determined that the man was D.O.A. and the operation quickly switched from a rescue to a body recovery. Northampton used their boat ramp to launch their boat to gain access to the victim.

Whitehall Police Department and the Coroners office is investigating the death.
