Wheelchair near river prompts search

Published by at 11:28 am under Rescues

An abandoned wheelchair tipped over near Geneva Road on the Provo River bank prompted a search for someone who may have fallen in. Search and Rescue joined Provo Police and Fire and searched the river all the way to the lake.

An object was found a few feet under water that was suspected of being a body, and it was, but the body of a goat. The wheelchair serial number was traced and had been stolen. The thief who abandoned the wheelchair was later located.
