RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities have identified two Wind River Indian Reservation residents who died after falling about 40 feet from a bridge at a Wyoming dam.

The Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/1L6gP7r ) that 17-year-old Tab Noline and 46-year-old Virginia Perry-Noline died Friday. Their obituaries say they were mother and son.

Fremont County Coroner Mark Stratmoen has ordered toxicology tests for both victims, but no autopsies have been scheduled.

Investigators have not yet been able to determine how the two fell from the Diversion Dam bridge, which is about 35 miles northwest of Riverton.

Stratmoen says it appears the incident was accidental.

Fremont County Search and Rescue crews along with Wind River police and the county sheriff’s office had responded to the area and helped recover both bodies.

An investigation remains ongoing.
