U.S. Army Corps trying to identify man who took children fishing in dangerous area

TEMPLETON, Pa. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers needs your help after pictures surfaced of an adult and three children fishing inside the area of warning buoys on the Allegheny River.

The photos were taken Sunday at the Allegheny River Lock and Dam 9.

The Army Corps, Pittsburgh District Inland Navigation is trying to identify the man in the photos.

Army Corps officials say what they're doing is extremely dangerous and illegal and even went so far to say, "We were horrified when we saw the pictures."

At no time is anyone ever allowed to tie off a boat on the ice breakers below the dam.

If anyone recognizes the man, call the Army Corp of Pittsburgh.
