Volunteer for Fish and Wildlife Drowns

A Tulsa, Oklahoma man who disappeared recently while doing volunteer work with the Department of Fish and Wildlife in the Cimarron River, has been found drowned, reports say.

Twenty-two year-old Tulsa Joshua Griffin's body was found in eight feet of water after a three-hour search by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Guthrie Fire Department. 

Griffin reportedly went under water around noon as he and a handful of other volunteers were searching the Cimarron River for a certain species of fish.

According to reports, Griffin was walking the river in about two feet of water when he fell into a deep hole.

Reports say Griffin was frantic as he tried to escape the hole, but when others tried to help he would tend to pull them in with him. Eventually Griffin went under and didn't surface. He was not wearing a life jacket, reports said.
