KLAMATH FALLS, Oregon (AP) - Oregon State Police are investigating after a woman drowned in the Sprague River near the Robert Draw Reservoir dam.

The Herald and News (http://bit.ly/29bTa8b ) in Klamath Falls reports that the woman, described as in her late 30s or early 40s, was swimming with friends on Saturday when she began drowning and her companions called 911.

Chiloquin Fire and Rescue chief Mike Cook says emergency workers attempted to resuscitate her for 20 minutes but were unsuccessful. The woman’s name has not been released.

Cook says recreationists should remember to use caution, especially when on slippery rocks and that people should not go swimming alone. He says it doesn’t appear that intoxicants played a role in the drowning.
