MILLVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Police in Jefferson County say a Virginia man has drowned in the Shenandoah River.

Sheriff’s Cpl. Dustin Tabler tells The Herald-Mail (https://bit.ly/1NAJn5h) that 29-year-old Norelvi Francisco of Herndon, Virginia, was trying to walk through some rapids when his foot became caught under a rock Sunday. Tabler says the river’s current caused Francisco to fall.
