Producer Jason came down for a day of shad fishing. We had a big rain storm the day before so we exptected some muddy water.
We got out to Chain Bridge around 9am on Saturday. We could see a helicopter circling the area as we drove down Chain Bridge Road. I said 'someone is probably in the water.'
We geared up and headed down the trail and across the bridge. The helicopter was just above the bridge, something was not normal. We crossed the bridge and asked a group of ladies if they knew anything They said they lived up the street and the chopper was out all night. We crossed the bridge and spotted several US Park Police officers searching the shoreline.
UPDATE: STORY IN LOCAL NEWS
This is the third drowning in the river this year. One was a Chicago tourist, the other a local.
