Man’s Body Pulled from Lehigh River

JIM THORPE, Pa. -- Officials say a man's body was pulled from the Lehigh River Saturday afternoon.

Police say the 33-year-old man's body was recovered from the river in Lehigh Gorge State Park in Jim Thorpe.

Initial reports were for a child in the river. Police said once they arrived on scene, they learned they were looking for a man instead.

The coroner identified the victim as Christopher Santana. The coroner said Santana was rafting with his family. His foot got caught on a rock, and he fell off the raft.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
