RENSSELAER - Rensselaer police said John Dandrow, 25, was fishing on the dock at Riverfront Park Thursday night. Witnesses say his fishing pole fell into the river and Dandrow jumped in to go after it. He was swept away by the strong current. His family says Dandrow had a mental disability and could not swim. They were at the scene all day as divers searched the river.
Divers found Dandrow just before 3:30 pm Friday near the area where they say he fell in.
