Two men, tragically, died in separate water incidents over the weekend.
Bradley Miller, 53, died at the American Falls Reservoir in Power County. Dallon Hill, 23, died near the Fun Farm Bridge in Fremont County.
Miller, who was from Pocatello, dove into the American Falls Reservoir on Sunday and never resurfaced, according to Power County sheriff’s officials. They were notified of the incident around 12:45 p.m.
Multiple agencies assisted in an extensive search for Miller, whose body was located on Monday morning shortly before 10 a.m., sheriff’s officials said.
“The Power County Sheriff’s Office extends its condolences out to the families affected in this tragic time,” a news release stated.
The sheriff’s office expressed it’s gratitude for Bingham County Sheriff’s Office, Power County Search and Rescue, the Bureau of Reclamation and community members who offered their assistance in the search for Miller.
Hill drowned after he jumped off of the Fun Farm Bridge on Saturday evening and never resurfaced, according to Fremont County sheriff’s officials.
Family members unsuccessfully tried to rescue him and called for help.
Fremont County Sheriff’s Office, St. Anthony Police Department, Idaho Fish and Game, Life Flight and Fremont County Search and Rescue assisted in the search for Hill. They were able to locate his body a short time later.
“Search and Rescue had divers in the water real quickly. One of them found (Mr. Hill) 80 yards down stream from the bridge,” Fremont County Sheriff Len Humphries said.
Hill grew up in the area and had been visiting his parents and other family members at Twin Groves when the drowning occurred, Humphries said.
Hill left behind a wife and a two-month-old baby girl, Humphries said.
