river between Council Bluffs and
Crescer.t, and opposite the Florence
station of the Omaha Water- com
pany. Young Briggs, his father, Ernest
Briggs, and his uncle had gone to
the fTver to bathe. The boy was
only learning to swim, and they bad
not gone into the main channel but
were in a narrow chute less than 30
feet wide through which a river Cur
rent was flowing. The boy was
wading in water only about waist
deep when he stepped into a depres
sion where the depth was 15 feet.
His uncle saw him disappear and
instantly plunged after -him. He
seized the strangling youth when'he
rose to. the surface, and although an
expert swimmer, wtas helpless when
the boy grasped him and pinioned
his arms. Both sank and when they
rose to the surface Reed was still
unable to break the hold of the
youth and was again dragged down.
When he rose the second time he
was free but was so nearly exhaust
ed that he was only able to reach
the shore a few feet away. There
was no boat nearby and the father,
unable to swim, had to look on
helplessly while his son was drown
ing. All of the remainder of the after
noon was spent by scores of men
trying to recover the body. A fish
net was stretched across the mouth
of the channel in the hope the body
could he prevented from reaching
the1 river. Dynamite will be used
today if the body is not recovered
in the meantime. The farm occu
pied by the Briggs family is Owned
by A. P. Falk, 223 Harmon street.
The drowned youth was the oldest
of a family of three boys.
