The Franklin students and their families, friends and teachers clumped together in small groups to pray for and talk about five friends whose swim in a river Friday turned terrifying.

Two Franklin Community High School students were in critical condition Friday night, and emergency workers were looking for a third after they became trapped in strong currents below a dam in the Big Blue River in Edinburgh.

Emergency workers suspended their search for Jason Moran, 17, on Friday night. Sarah McLevish, 16, and Michael Chadbourne, 16, were in critical condition at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital. Trent Crabb, 17, and Mark Nally, 18, who had pulled two of their friends from the river, escaped without injuries.
