Search underway for three people swept into Milwaukee drainage ditch

Three people are still missing in Milwaukee after authorities said two men jumped into a drainage ditch to try rescue an 11-year-old.

The boy was playing football on Monday night in Loomis, a suburb of Milwaukee, when he somehow ended-up in the drainage ditch nearby, CBS58 reported.

Two men, including the boy’s father, jumped into the drainage ditch in a rescue attempt but were swept away by the stream, which serves the Kinnickinnic River.

Rescuers paused searching overnight but were due to continue on Tuesday.
