Three Missing After Boating Mishap Near Brannan Island State Park Sunday

SHARE

Three adults who jumped into the Delta to aid a child in the water are missing Sunday despite an exhaustive air and marine search.

The search for the trio, unidentified but believed part of a large family gathering just outside Brannan Island State Park, has quietly turned from a search operation to a recovery.

Brannan Island is just northeast of Antioch in Sacramento County. Rescuers say the missing child was wearing a life vest, was found and was saved.

A Coast Guard helicopter and surface vessels searched the waters off the island for hours Sunday.

  1. The water seems so innocuous. How does this happen? Cold, cold water? Currents? Snags under the surface? How do multiple adults drown like this? Very sad! What can we learn from this tragedy?
