Man Drowns In Delaware River

Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River

National Park News

Britos Gustavo, 28, and five friends were camping just north of the Stalker-Kellam Bridge at the Soaring Eagle campground on July 26th when they decided to go for a morning swim. None were wearing lifejackets. They swam downstream to a point where the water was swifter and deeper, at which point they began to tire and panic. They worked to help each other and all but Britos made it to shore. A multi-agency search was begun for him. His body was recovered in about 15 feet of water south of the bridge by personnel from the Equinunk Fire Department. A Honesdale EMS paramedic pronounced him dead at the scene. An investigation is being conducted by rangers, Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, and Wayne County Coroner’s Office.
