Englewood Man Drowns In Missouri Waterway

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Three people drowned in separate incidents around Missouri on Independence Day.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 18-year-old Joshua Washington of Republic was trying to help others at Table Rock Lake when he went underwater at 10:20 a.m. Friday and didn’t come back up. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

At 4:25 p.m., 30-year-old Justin Byrd of Englewood, Colo., fell off a boat anchored in Anderson Hollow Cove at the Lake of the Ozarks. The water patrol says he was submerged for 5 minutes before others realized he was missing.

At 6:15 p.m., 81-year-old Gary Gilbert of Cape Girardeau was wading across the Castor River in southeast Missouri when he lost his balance and fell. The patrol says his body was found later in a root wad.
