Drowning Near The Mercier Bridge (1953) | Surname: Diabo
Earlier in the morning, two fishermen spotted the body of a 36-year-old native of Caughnawaga in the river about a mile east of the Mercer Bridge.
Police identified the man as Joseph Diabo and said he drowned Saturday evening when his rowboat overturned. It brought last weekend’s drowning toll to 15.
