ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities have identified a second victim of this week's flooding in Pennsylvania.
The coroner said Friday a woman found by a civilian in Conewago Creek near Elizabethtown is 19-year-old Laura Olweiler. He says she died of accidental drowning.
Her body was recovered Thursday less than a mile downstream from where police said she was swept into the swollen creek on Monday as she tried to cross it.
An 18-year-old man also drowned, apparently when he was swept away by floodwaters in Adams County after his car became stranded. His body was found Wednesday.
Five days of downpours brought a foot or more of rain to an over 100-mile swath of Pennsylvania.
