2 teen swimmers dead, pulled from Buffalo canal

BUFFALO (AP) -- Police say two teenage swimmers were pronounced dead after being pulled from a canal in Buffalo.
 
Local media report that the pair, a male and a female, had been underwater for about 30 minutes before police divers found them Thursday night in the Union Ship Canal in South Buffalo. Witnesses say the unidentified victims appeared to be struggling before disappearing underwater.
 
Divers found the victims deep in the mucky water after a 19-minute search. They were given CPR, but were unresponsive.
 
The victims were swimming in an area known as a hangout for local youths. That section of the canal is blocked by a fence.
