Rockingham County officials have identified the family members who went over the Duke Energy dam while tubing on the Dan River.
Nine family members went tubing on the Dan River around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night, just before dark. At some point, the tubes went over a Duke Energy dam in Eden.
Four people were rescued, three died and their bodies were recovered from the river, and two are still missing.
The bodies recovered were those of Bridish Crawford, 27, of Eden, Antonio Ramon, 30, of Eden, and Sophie Wilson, 14, of La Porte, Indiana.
Teresa Villano, 35, of Eden, and Isiah Crawford, 7, of Eden, are still missing.
Those rescued were Rueben Villano, 35, of Eden, Eric Villano, 14, of Eden, Irene Villano, 18, of Eden, and Karlos Villano, 14, of La Porte, Indiana.
Rockingham County Emergency Services Director Rodney Cates says he believes the people on the tubes didn’t have a way to call for help, which caused the delay in rescue efforts.
