The swollen Brandywine Creek proved too dangerous for two kayakers Tuesday, who have now been identified as brothers, according to officials.
The men were last seen going over a dam near the Brandywine Picnic Park in West Chester, Pa. around 1:20 p.m., police said. Both went underwater and when they didn't come up right away, park staff called rescuers.
"Immediately law enforcement responded, water rescue responded…we were able to locate one individual," said West Chester Police Chief Scott Bohn.
Westminster Presbyterian Church (1502 West 13th Street, Wilmington, Del.) will hold a memorial service Sunday, June 14 at 10:00 a.m. to honor his life and ministry work, according to a church administrator.
