Search resumes for 3 missing after boat capsized
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A fire chief says crews have resumed searching in Kentucky for three people missing after their pontoon boat hit a barge and capsized in the Ohio River.
Louisville Fire Chief Greg Frederick says the search has turned into more of a recovery effort given the amount of time since the incident.
Frederick says nine people were aboard the boat when it capsized Saturday night. One adult and one child died. Four people, including three children wearing life jackets, were rescued. Frederick says one of those still missing Monday is a child.
The barge that the pontoon boat hit was in a construction site about a mile upstream from the Clark Memorial Bridge.
Frederick says officials expect the search effort to be challenging because of treacherous river conditions.
