• Conditions too dangerous to recover body near dam on Ohio River


    MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Investigators told Channel 11 they know there's a body in the water at the Dashields Dam, but they can't get it out just yet.

    The dam is along the Ohio River, north of Sewickley.

    The river is running fast because of all the recent rain and that's making it too dangerous to retrieve the body.

    Someone in a passing tow boat reported Monday they saw a body go over the dam.


    They believed it was a woman.

    Right now, there's no indication who that person is.

    A positive identification won't be made until that body is recovered and there's no time frame on when that will happen.

    Two women died at the dam in May.
