After nine hours of combing the river near an Edinburgh dam, dozens of emergency workers halted their search for a teen who had been sucked under water while trying to rescue a friend.

The crews had been searching since shortly after noon, when five Franklin teens who had been swimming upstream of the dam of the Big Blue River became overpowered by fast-moving water after going over the dam.

Four were rescued; but Jason K. Moran, 17, had not been found. He and three other teens went over the dam to try to help a friend who had been swept over.
