LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A south-central Kentucky coroner says a
search team along the swollen Green River has found the body of a
Kentucky kayaker who had been missing since Monday.
The discovery raises the death toll to five as a result of
flooding in Kentucky last weekend.
Hart County Coroner Jeff Roten said Friday that the body of
55-year-old Robert Atcher was found about six miles downriver from
where Atcher started his kayaking trip on the flooded river.
Authorities say the kayak Atcher was using hit a logjam and the
current pulled him under.
